Christine and funnyman husband Paddy are open about their sometimes challenging family life in an attempt to raise awareness of autism.
In the caption to the texts, she uploaded a lengthy message.
Christine wrote: "Day 1 : Lockdown 3. This may or may not help anyone but this is ‘real life’ I just want to let my SEN families know you are not alone, I hear you, I understand.
"For me personally I feel good, I am very head strong and I love to stay positive but I can’t deny what these lockdowns are doing to my children.
"My children are not the same little people they were this time last year.
"The pandemic is affecting everyone differently, wether it’s your business, your mental health, a loss of life.. Covid is hitting everyone hard in different ways it’s heartbreaking.
"I pray every day, I hope it passes soon. Thinking of you all, sending love and light to each and every one of you (This image is a message I sent to one of my SEN mummy friends this morning) In it together."
The doting mother does all she can to ensure her children are happy.
She revealed that to make sure they ate on Christmas Day she had to dish up plates of fish fingers and chips for the kids.
Her attitude drew plenty of praise, with one fan saying: "I wish all mums were as good as you."
