Kelvin Fletcher is to be a dad again

The former 'Emmerdale' star took to Instagram to reveal he and his wife Liz Marsland - who he married in 2015 - are expecting a new addition to their brood in 2022.

Kelvin - who has daughter Marnie, five, and son Milo, two, with Liz - wrote: "Team Fletcher is about to get bigger

Can’t tell you how happy we all are. We feel extremely grateful and can’t wait to meet the new addition to our family.

Thank you for all your kind messages.

We are gonna need another pair of wellies! (sic)"

Liz also shared a picture of herself, Kelvin and their two littles ones on their farm.

She added the caption: "There’s a little baby bump under that coat! What an amazing way to end 2021!! We couldn’t be happier (sic)"

As well as being known for his time on 'Emmerdale', during which he played farmer Andy Sugden, Kelvin captured the hearts of the nation when he won the 'Strictly Come Dancing' Glitterball Trophy in 2019 with his professional partner Oti Mabuse.

And in October, the 37-year-old star cheekily suggested he could return to the Latin and ballroom programme after former rugby star Ugo Monye - who was partnered with Oti - was ruled out of a show, and Robert Webb had pulled out of the competition earlier in the week.

He wrote on Twitter: "I’m here if you need me @bbcstrictly [face with stuck-out tongue and winking emoji]"
