    Unsurprisingly, Nicola and Nikesh's news caught the attention of their followers, with some rushing to leave a message in the comment section. Former Corrie actress Katie McGlynn wrote: "Congrats lovely", while one fan penned: "Ahh wow! Many congratulations, team! Wonderful news!!"

    A third person said: "Congratulations. I clocked that bump weeks ago. You look fabulous." While a fourth social media said: "You guys are the best." The baby news comes just month after Nicola and Nikesh got engaged.

    In January this year, the couple announced their engagement and jokingly posed with their mouths open wide as she displayed the gold ring, featuring an emerald surrounded by diamonds, with a second picture showing them cosying up together.

    Nicola first revealed she was in a relationship with the actor in 2021, posting a sweet snap of the couple on social media. Nikesh has appeared in a number of TV shows including Channel 4's Indian Summers, BBC's Starstruck and the mini-series Four Weddings and a Funeral.

    The TV star is known for playing Nicola Rubinstein on Corrie from 2017 to 2019. Since quitting the ITV1 soap, she has turned her hand to broadcasting and is now set to juggle her own show and becoming a new mum. Launching on Monday (October 2), Nicola will co-host brand new breakfast TV show, Talk Today, with Jeremy Kyle, who recently announced his wife is pregnant with his six child.

    The morning staple will air on TalkTV daily from 6am to 9.30am, with Nicola and Jeremy anchoring the Monday to Thursday instalments. Nicola said: "It’' a dream come true to be co-hosting the brand-new breakfast show Talk Today.

    "I've been part of the TalkTV family for the past 18 months, during which time I’ve connected with people who have challenged my opinions and taught me how to find common ground across the political divide. I’m looking forward to hearing from our viewers all over the UK about what matters most to them and holding politicians to account. It’s important to both me and Jeremy that everyone gets a voice."
