The TV host has been getting driven around by James


Katie Piper is very excited at the thought of driving for the first time since the arrival of her daughter Belle Elizabeth via C-section last month.

The TV presenter, 30, told her Twitter followers yesterday that she’ll be on the road again later this week and will no longer need boyfriend James to give her lifts.

‘6 weeks this week since I gave birth! No more being chauffeured around by my man! I’m back behind the wheel as of Friday!!! BEWARE!’ Tweeted Katie.

It generally takes around a month and a half for women who’ve had caesareans to heal and many wait until after their six-week postnatal check before controlling a motor.

But Katie hasn’t let the long recovery time affect her first few weeks with Belle.

She shared a Twitter snap of an adorable frog costume that she and carpenter James, 29, dressed Belle up in for Easter at the weekend after going to visit her family on Friday.

‘My little toads Easter costume!’ Katie captioned the cute photo.
