"I am sorry I won't be in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games," said Jessica.

"But I know it will be an amazing occasion. I will be at home awaiting the arrival of a little Ennis-Hill."

The sporting star said she still plans to compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

She said: "I am 100% set on returning to full-time athletics once our baby is born."
