Konnie Huq, 36, is expecting a baby with her comedy writer husband Charlie Brooker.

The former Blue Peter and Xtra Factor presenter is expecting a boy in the spring.

Konnie Huq is best-known in the UK for being the longest-serving female presenter of children's television programme Blue Peter.

The 36-year-old has also presented X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor on ITV2 and recently co-wrote Channel 4 programme Black Mirror with her husband Charlie Brooker.

The pair were married at a ceremony in Las Vegas in 2010.
