X Factor champ Shayne, who plays Aidan Connor on the cobbles, confirmed the news on Twitter, telling followers: “After much speculation I’m over joyed to announce that @sophieaustin1 and I are expecting our first child. #blessed”.

Sophie then echoed his thoughts on her Twitter.

A source added that the two have been keeping the news private for a little while, telling The Sun: “Sophie and Shayne have been keeping the exciting news to themselves to enjoy the moment in private.

“But mum and baby are doing amazing and they’ve started telling their nearest and dearest.

“They were unable to hide their joy at Shayne’s music gig at Glasgow’s Hamilton Park Racecourse on Saturday, chatting about the baby backstage. It’s definitely shocked a few people because of how fast it’s happened, but they’re completely in love and are excited about becoming first-time parents.”

The couple started dating in March, having struck up a close friendship after Sophie sadly separated from husband Graeme Rooney.

Congratulations again on your exciting news, Shayne and Sophie!
