Watch: Kelvin Fletcher and his wife announce baby news on live TV

Kelvin Fletcher and his wife Liz Marsland have revealed they are expecting twins.

The Emmerdale actor - who won Strictly Come Dancing in 2019 - are already parents to Marnie and Milo and recently moved to start a new family life on a farm in The Peak District.

Fletcher, 38, told BBC Breakfast: "We just recently found out, to add another curveball if you like.

"So, we're having twins. It was an absolute eye-opener.

"So, come May, we'll be delivering lambs for the first time. I'm not going to be delivering babies as such but it is going to be a really busy time."

"Yeah, we'll have four children."

The couple - who met as children only to reunite around 10 years ago - announced in December that they were expecting another child together.

The family are documenting their new life in BBC show Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure.

The family's six-part farming documentary series, filmed last summer, sees them building a new life in the countryside.

Marsland said: "That was a bit of a worry because it's a new place, new school, new people.

"At first it was just a huge playground for them. And now Marnie knows all the responsibilities, she knows what needs doing, show knows that this is a job now and we've got all these animals that we ahve to look after.

"Even Milo, he's three-years-old and he's doing all the sheep whistling, getting them into the fields. What they're learning - that's one of our proudest moments, seeing them grow into this life."
