Rebecca, who is from Mansfield in Nottinghamshire, and her husband Harry Needs welcomed their new arrival on the 8th of June.

She told Hello! Magazine: “It (labour) was the most painful thing I have ever done but also the most rewarding.

“Winning medals doesn’t really make a difference to real life but bringing a new child into the world is without a doubt our greatest achievement.”

Rebecca revealed that she managed most of her labour in a birthing pool, but had to get out when complications arose just before Summer was born.

Duran Duran demo recordings heard by public for first time

Music fans are being offered a rare opportunity to hear Birmingham pop legends Duran Duran as they have never heard them before.

Demo recordings of their early hits are being made available to public ears, for the first time.

Since the early 1980s, the records have been in the vaults at the recording studio where they were produced - but to celebrate the establishment's 35th anniversary, the tapes are being played once again - to a lucky few.

Andy Bevan was one of them. If you also want the chance to hear all the demo tapes in full, click here.
