Jennie is already mum to little Albert, who she shares with husband Chris Farr, who she married back in January last year.

The Corrie favourite made the announcement by revealing that Albert was going to be a big brother later this year…

The message had only been on social media for moments when the actress was inundated with messages of congratulations for fans and fellow TV stars alike…

After taking a break from filming Corrie last year, the star appeared on ITV reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! where she came fourth.

During her time in the Australian jungle, Jennie made no secret that she was finding it extremely tough being away from her three-year-old son, and of course was thrilled to be reunited with him when she left the show.

While Jennie was away in Australia, her character Fiz Stape was written out of the soap under the pretence that she was going to visit her ill mum, Cilla.

After Jennie revealed her baby news, some fans joked that Fiz might be taking another trip to see her mum again – hinting that might be how the writers get around Jennie’s maternity leave.

With things still fraught between Fiz and Tyrone in Coronation Street – could the writers use the fact their marriage is on the rocks to write Jennie out again?
