Former X Factor contestant and Celebrity Big Brother housemate Frankie Cocozza has revealed that he and his wife Bianca are expecting their first child.

The couple married in Frankie's home city of Brighton earlier this year, and now they've confirmed that they're soon to be a family of three as Frankie shared a photo of an ultrasound scan on his Instagram.

He kept the caption simple, writing: "Ecstatic," and he tagged Bianca too.

Among those who rushed to congratulate the couple after the announcement was Celebs Go Dating matchmaker Eden Blackman, who wrote: "Oh man this is beautiful news. Congratulations to you both."

Frankie first rose to fame when he competed on the 2011 series of The X Factor, making it all the way to the live shows as part of Gary Barlow's Boys category, before he was later forced to leave the show.

He then went on to star in the ninth series of Celebrity Big Brother, where he ultimately finished in second place.

Last year, Frankie also appeared on Celebs Go Dating in an attempt to find love – although he proved himself to be a rule breaker again as he hooked up with fellow celeb Charlotte Dawson rather than a girl chosen for him by the show.

After a few action-packed episodes and plenty of drama for Celebs Go Dating viewers, that relationship didn't exactly pan out, but Frankie soon moved on when he met Bianca.

And, thankfully, there was a happy ending for the daters that Charlotte and Frankie dumped to hook up with each other too, as they later got married last year.
