Leona took to TikTok to recall the embarrassing situation, which happened on Monday – the day of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral – as she said: “I’ve had a bit of an embarrassing day today.
“Me and my toddler went for a walk in our forest.

She grabbed her adidas jacket “fresh from the tumble dryer, popped that on and me and my son walked round the forest for an hour and a half”.
