Fletcher, best known for playing Andy Sugden in the ITV soap, said: "We just recently found out, to add another curveball if you like.

"We don't really do things by halves and then we found out we're having not just one baby, but two."

The pair who already have two children, five-year-old Marnie and two-year-old Milo, luckily have the space, thanks to their purchase of a farm on 120 acres.
