Sarah Jayne Dunn, who plays the expectant mum, revealed to Radio Times that the news she is pregnant couldn't be more of a bombshell for her character...

"She's very shocked as it comes as quite a surprise! She's feeling a little off and under the weather, so she takes a pregnancy test just to be sure... not expecting it to be positive!

But it seems she doesn't need to panic because it has been hinted that Darren takes the news surprisingly well.

The actress confessed that she thinks there is a future for Mandy and Darren, believing they're strong as a couple.
