She said: "When I saw the test was positive I started crying, but they were happy tears. It wasn't something we'd planned but now we are having a baby we couldn't be happier."

Jack chimed in: "It was definitely a shock but I was over the moon when she told me. I think it's still sinking in, I can't wait to be a dad."

Chelsee went on: "It can be a bit upsetting because he's really not a bad guy. Jack has been tarnished because of the mistakes he has made in the past, but everyone makes mistakes.

"It's a shame that people jump to conclusions about him because he's a great guy, we're very happy together. Jack is the only man who has ever felt like my best friend as well as my boyfriend."

The Strictly Come Dancing contestant sparked speculation back in January when she appeared to have a tiny bump on the red carpet for the National Television Awards.

Chelsee, who first appeared on our screens as a teenage tearaway in BBC1 TV show Waterloo Road, has had a turbulent three-year relationship with jailbird Jack Malloy. The pair were said to have split, when Jack's stint in prison for dangerous driving took its toll on their relationship.

A source told The Sun a couple of weeks ago: "Chelsee and Jack's relationship over the years has hardly been the most stable in showbiz.

"But she hopes having a baby together will make their bond stronger. Chelsee knows it will be tough but she believes there's enough support around her to make it work."

Congratulations to the pair!
