“During the lockdown I invested £4.99 in a do not disturb sign and it is red. And I put it on my door and it means beeping until I say otherwise,” she explained.
“We meet in the kitchen at 10:30 and then go to different parts of the house.”
Andrea spoke about her decision to quit Loose Women two years ago, saying: “I was part of the big layoff. Because I thought, if not now, when? I quit my job in the middle of the pandemic to do something I really believe in.’

“I feel like I’m doing what I’ve always had to do. Nothing I’ve done before was a waste of time because of all the skills I’ve learned etc. And I love to do something here once in a while. But I get up every day and love what I do.’
She admitted to being a realist when it comes to her work and family life, explaining:
“I hate this sense of toxic positivity – plastering on a fake smile – it makes me itch. Realistic positivity, how can we find a solution for this?’
Andrea previously confessed to sleeping with her husband on their first date together.
The Loose Women star, 52, admitted she was “not interested” in finding love when she went on a blind date with Nick, and after getting “very drunk” the pair ended up spending the night together.

Andrea, who married Nick in 2017, also confessed that she’s only slept with four different men in her life, so it was “a big deal” for her to spend the night with him on their first date.
Speak with The sun earlier this month, Andrea revealed that she and Nick were set up on their date in 2014 by a Loose Women makeup artist.
She said: “Neither of us wanted to be there. We didn’t care if the date went well or not, because we weren’t interested, and we weren’t looking for anything serious.’
Andrea added that Nick had no idea who she was when the date started, and he only realized it when she was approached by a bachelorette party and asked for a photo.
She added: “I got very drunk and told him all about myself. We kissed and I went home with him, something I’d never done in all my life.’

Andrea also confessed that in addition to her three husbands, she’s only slept with one other person in total, adding: “My numbers aren’t very high, so it’s quite a bit that I did. I thought, ‘Why not? He seems nice”.
Andrea first revealed that she was living with Nick live on Loose Women in 2016, and just a year later, the couple tied the knot.
