Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing recently revealed that he went through a phase of picturing his mum's face during sex.

Jamie is currently engaged to fiancée Sophie Habboo – who it happened with.

The couple discussed it on their podcast NearlyWeds, with Jamie branding it as "really normal."

Sophie asked him if it still happens, to which he replied: "No, it doesn't still happen. There was a period for a bit, it's an anxiety thing I think, lots of people have it."

Jamie, 33, continued: "Anyway, going back to my point, I had it for a period, it's an OCD thing where I would suddenly go to my mum's image in my head while I was having sex with you."

Sophie responded: "That's really put a dampener on our sex life."

Psychologist Charlotte Armitage spoke to OK! about whether this does happen frequently.

Charlotte explained that Jamie could have been seeing his mum's face because he may have been imagining himself having kids with his partner Sophie.

The psychologist said: "When the dynamics of a relationship are changing, for example, if someone is aiming to marry their partner, imagining them as the mother of their children, may well cause them to bring their own mother to mind."

According to reports, consciously and unconsciously, imagining having children of your own causes us to think of our own parents.

This is because they are our main point of reference, "as such, during a sexual act, we can see how the image of one’s mother may come to mind," she added.

She continually told the publication that there are many reasons why someone may picture the face of someone they can’t consciously imagine wanting to see whilst having sex.

Charlotte explained that this will be based on the individual themselves and the nature of the relationship that they had with that person.

She added: "If they hated the individual that they are bringing to mind, it could be linked to self-sabotage, through them not allowing themselves to enjoy having sex, it could also be related to anger. There are many many reasons, each will be specific and unique to the individual."
