"We have been keeping the biggest (smallest) secret of our lives!" Daisy wrote. "We couldn't let Covid get in the way of any more of our plans so instead of saying 'I do' this year, we've been growing and preparing for our precious baby son or daughter (still can't believe those words are coming out of my mouth!)

"Cannot wait to tell you all more about our journey so far ❤️ #19weekspregnant #nearlyhalfwaythere #dueoct2021 I love you @lukejerdy."

The same set of photos were shared by Luke over on his Instagram, alongside the caption: "Just call us Mum and Dad."

Daisy played the role of Kim Butterfield in Hollyoaks from 2014 to late 2018. Luke joined the soap as Jesse Donovan in 2016, with his character meeting a tragic end last year.

Announcing their engagement back in 2019, Daisy said she'd "never felt a happiness like this" when Luke proposed.

"It's so surreal but nothing has ever felt more natural. I can't wait to marry my best friend and celebrate how lucky we are to have found what we have," Daisy wrote on Instagram.

"Not to mention, he designed me the engagement ring of my DREAMS. I have spent the last few days staring lovingly at him and the ring in equal measure (maybe more the ring 😜) Let the celebrations commence!"

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
