And Sharon revealed that the show’s very own Dr Chris was in on the wonderful news.

She said: “Well, I told Dr Chris very early so he has been keeping the secret. Myself and my partner Paul Fletcher we’re 14 weeks along, and we let Dr Chris into the secret a little while ago. He is the king of the corridor consultation.  We tell him everything.”
