Former Spice Girls star Melanie Brown is facing an induced labour after her doctor ruled she must give birth this week (ends04Sep11).
The singer-turned-Tv personality is so close to having her third child she's desperately trying every trick possible to help kick-start the delivery.
She told her Twitter.com fans last week (begs22Aug11), "OK, I have walked, had a hot curry, a bit of 'you no what' (sex), cried at a movie, bounced up and down on (a) work out ball, Still no labour, any ideas?"
But, all joking aside, the heavily-pregnant star has been told she will need to be induced if she has not given birth naturally by Sunday (04Sep11).
She tells Australia's Kyle and Jackie O Show, "I just had my doctor on the phone and he's given me some ultimatums which are good.
"It's coming out this week, one way or another it's coming out this week. It's called epidural and pain relievers!
"Ideally I want it to come naturally, but I've tried everything. And it just seems to be stuck and hibernating in there getting bigger and bigger, so it's coming out this week for sure."
