Cheers for sorting out the link. Bloody phone.

"The programme, which has been on air for two decades, is not practical for new mums as it requires hosts to shoot episodes for up to 40 weeks a year and travel extensively."

Yawn.

you could actually imagine that being a doable job with a baby (once past the recovery/frequent breastfeeding stage) if you had a nanny because you could just take the baby everywhere with you, whereas once a child got older it wouldn't be so portable.

"Frequent travelling"...

Now, I don't know much about the job in question, but even when relaint on public transport, I found a young DS extremely portable. In fact, I managed a 7 hour train journey on my own once he was 10 months old (with several changes)...

I don't know much about nannying, and how that works, but surely it's a possibilty. If not, and god forbid I should suggest this... maybe the father could be a primary carer... Or is that too left wing?

I can understand them replacing her whilst she's on maternity leave. But the article does sound very "We'll decide when she can come back..."
