Former Strictly winner Kelvin Fletcher and his wife Liz are expecting their third child, the couple have announced.

The former Emmerdale star, 37, and his wife raise their daughter Marnie and their son Milo.

They were delighted to share their baby joy with the rest of the world.

The couple announced the news in a statement: “There’s no question that for the Fletcher family the best thing to come out of 2021 is the news that we are expecting again.

“We are feeling extremely grateful and can’t wait to meet the new addition to our family.”

The couple have been happily married since they tied the knot in November 2015.

Fletcher, who rose to fame playing Andy Sugden on TV soap Emmerdale between 1996 and 2016, won the 2019 series of Strictly Come Dancing alongside professional Oti Mabuse.

The 37-year-old was originally a replacement on the show for injured actor Jamie Laing.

Next year he and his family will be seen on screens in new BBC programme Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure.

The six-part series, filmed over the summer, will see the family “de-camp to the countryside” as they build a new life on a farm in the Peak District.

The actor will “get to grips with the notoriously tough world of livestock markets, sheep wrangling and the maintenance of a huge estate with endless outbuildings and an unmanageable cast of animals”, the BBC has said.

Of the new venture, he said: “This is without doubt the biggest challenge I’ve ever taken on. I’m really excited to share the unforgettable first steps into our new life of farming and adventures.”

The show is scheduled to air on January 17 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
