Mark, who played Daz Spencer on Emmerdale, said: “We had hoped it would be this year.

“I went off on a tour and we were planning everything and we were like, ‘As soon as the tour is done we can scoot off…’

“And now this pandemic has happened. And now something else [Laura’s pregnancy] has happened.”

Laura, who portrays Kerry Wyatt in the soap, went on to show off her bump.

What did Emmerdale star Laura Norton say?

When asked if they’ve found out the gender of their unborn baby, Laura said: “No, not yet.”

The couple went on to discuss how they became an item.

After becoming “really good friends” they were reluctant to embark on a relationship in case they ruined their friendship.

Laura, 37,  said: “When we first told each other we liked each other we just went, ‘Shall we just leave it? Shall we just stay as friends? It’s probably best.’

“So, it was months after we actually told each other.”

Mark, 55, added: “We were really good friends. We kept re-examining the question and eventually it was a bit more of a question.”

But Laura revealed the former Heartbeat actor, who has children Joseph, 22, and Poppy, 19, with his ex Siobhan Finneran, “got brave” and asked her out.
