Former Block star-turned-radio host Jess Eva candidly admitted she often wets herself in the studio on Monday.
‘I am a big advocate of free the wee,’ Jess said. ‘I wee myself here in the studio. I go to have a little wrestle with Mooney then I go ”I’m weeing, I’m weeing”.’

Jess said she often has to go to the toilets and ‘dry shampoo’ her underwear in order to finish the show.
Olympian Jana, who had a baby six months ago, bravely spoke of her incontinence after scenes emerged of her wetting herself on the tough reality series.
‘In all truth I thought it was really important,’ she said. ‘There are so many women out there that deal with incontinence.’

‘This needs to be shown [on TV]. The men will think I’m gross but the women might think I’m a hero,’ she added.
Jess told Daily Mail Australia in June that she wets herself ’90 per cent of the time’ on her Triple M breakfast show.
She said she suffers from the condition following the birth of her two children – Fred, six, and Matilda, four.

‘I whoosh myself at the drop of a hat. 90 per cent of the time I wee myself during Moonman in the Morning after I laugh or I cough or I sneeze,’ she said.
‘Sometimes I just dry shampoo my undies, and then go back into the studio because that’s the only thing I can find!’
Jess, who shares her children with husband Norm Hogan, said the way her babies were born didn’t particularly help with her condition.

‘Fred had a head the size of a beach ball, so that was the beginning of the end,’ she added. ‘…and then Tildy came out a little bit sideways.
‘So even if I’m walking down to the supermarket and I have to cough, I have to stop, hold my legs and hope for the best.’
Jess added that she has absolutely no shame in discussing the topic, and hopes that more mums will speak out about it in the near future.
