Hayley Tamaddon is expecting her first child.

The 42-year-old actress - who won the 2010 series of "Dancing on Ice" and is known for her roles in "Emmerdale" and "Coronation Street" - has revealed she and her boyfriend Adrian are set to welcome a little boy or girl into the world, despite being told she would never be able to get pregnant.

Georgia Taylor - who plays Toyah Battersby on "Corrie" - congratulated her former co-star.

She commented: "Oh darling congratulations! You'll make such a lovely mum."

Whilst "Dancing on Ice" judge Jayne Torvill added to her Instagram post: "Congratulations Hayley, so pleased for you xx. (sic)"

Before meeting Adrian, the "Shameless" star dated Marcus Brigstocke from 2010 until 2014 - and the comedian left his wife for Hayley.

At the time, the actress admitted she was too busy to have children and is "scared" of nappies.

She said: "My body feels 37 but I still feel 21. I sometimes forget that I'm going to be 40. It would be lovely to have kids in the future but for now my main ­concentration is my work.

"I'm not scared of nappies or screaming babies but I'm just not at that point.

"Not many of my friends have settled down either. I'm a workaholic. It's always work, work, work, I can't switch it off."
