The TV star continued: “This day last year I flew to Cape Town and went straight from a 14 hr flight to this @Loveisland shoot. It was so exciting but also f***ing scary!”

Continuing to say that it felt like a totally different time in her life, Laura reflected on how much has changed.

Laura, who recently announced she’s expecting her first baby with husband Iain Stirling, typed: “It feels like a lifetime ago, not a mere 12 months, and nothing could prepare me for the emotional rollercoaster ahead.”

She then opened up about their big day, saying: “A year ago Iain asked me to marry him and we had the most magical, perfect ceremony.”

Clearly still on cloud nine, she added: “We loved having it to ourselves. We had been planning the perfect celebration and I will forever be so thankful that’s what we got.

And explaining why they didn’t share the news earlier, Laura said: “We have never spoken publicly about our engagement or wedding.”

“Back at the time we never felt the need to say anything as it’s all such a personal experience. We also were too busy enjoying it!”

"We’ve never shared this picture before now but a lot of people have contacted us and congratulated us the last month with good intentions so here’s to good news!" she continued.

Laura finished off her post by writing: "Sending love to you and yours and here’s to 2021! Happy new year everyone! Wishing you all the love x.”
