"The middle name Michael after our dear friend Michael Sleggs who we lost last year. May the spirit of sluggs live on!"


Sluggs - full name Michael Slugette - is the character that the late actor played in the BBC comedy show.

The role as Kerry and Kurtan's friend was Michael's first acting gig before he passed away.

Michael tragically passed away aged just 33 last July following heart complications.

When she gave birth last week, Daisy wrote: "The bubba has landed and he's absolutely perfect."

However - known for her unflinching honesty - it will come as no surprise that she didn't shy away from discussing how "traumatic" the birth was, either.

Thanking the delivery suite at Gloucester Hospital for looking after her, adding: "Its been quite a traumatic few days and they have gone above and beyond."

Addressing a specific midwife - Debbie Taylor - in a following post, she added: "Yesterday [Debbie] helped me from being consumed by my own farts when I was in agony with trapped wind.

"Feel so blessed to know this superhero and all the other incredible midwives who had looked after me and made me laugh through all the discomfort @gloucester_birthunit @deliverysuitegrh."

We love Daisy for her real talk. And this tribute to Sluggs is so perfect.
