"We couldn't let Covid get in the way of any more of our plans so instead of saying 'I do' this year, we've been growing and preparing for our precious baby son or daughter (still can't believe those words are coming out of my mouth!)."

Wood-Davis is 19 weeks pregnant.

"Cannot wait to tell you all more about our journey so far," she added.

New episodes of Hollyoaks air weekdays on Channel 4, with repeats on E4.
