Former Strictly Come Dancing champion Kelvin Fletcher and his wife Liz Marsland have a big reason to smile this Christmas as they are expecting their third child.
The former Emmerdale star, 37, and his wife are already parents to daughter Marnie, five, and son Milo, two.
‘There’s no question that for the Fletcher family the best thing to come out of 2021 is the news that we are expecting again,’ the happy couple told the PA news agency in a statement.
‘We are feeling extremely grateful and can’t wait to meet the new addition to our family.’
Kelvin won the 2019 series of Strictly alongside professional partner Oti Mabuse after being a last-minute replacement for an injured Jamie Laing.
He rose to fame playing Andy Sugden on ITV soap Emmerdale between 1996 and 2016.
Kelvin and Liz, also an actress, have been married since November 2015, but they’ve been together for years before that.
She even recently treated fans to a throwback picture of the two of them in their younger days, with Kelvin showing off a rather interesting floppy hairstyle.
She joked that ‘100 years ago @kelvin_fletcher we had the same hair style!’
Next year he and his family will be seen on screens in new BBC programme Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure.
The six-part series, filmed over the summer this year, will see the family ‘de-camp to the countryside’ as they build a new life on a farm in the Peak District.
The actor will ‘get to grips with the notoriously tough world of livestock markets, sheep wrangling and the maintenance of a huge estate with endless outbuildings and an unmanageable cast of animals,’ the BBC has said.
Kelvin said: ‘This is without doubt the biggest challenge I’ve ever taken on.
‘I’m really excited to share the unforgettable first steps into our new life of farming and adventures.’
Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure is scheduled to air on January 17 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
