Keane frontman Tom Chaplin is set to become a first time dad.

The star, 34, told BBC Breakfast that his wife Natalie Dive is expecting their first child.

"My wife's got a baby on the way next year, and I'm hoping to make a solo record as well so that is going to be a bit of a diversion," he said.

Tom and Natalie married in 2011.

Keane - whose song Somewhere Only We Know has been covered by Lily Allen in the John Lewis Christmas advert - are currently on a break but Tom said it would not be permanent.

The singer said: "We have known each other all our lives and (the band) is an integral part of who we are."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Impulsive purchases will put you in a difficult financial position. It's important to exercise economic restraint. If you strongly desire to buy something, wait an entire day. The urge to splash out will probably diminish, saving you a significant sum. Money from an inheritance, dividend or royalty payment should be conserved. Having a nest egg will give you a greater measure of freedom. Independence is the best gift you can give yourself. Materialism won't bring you the happiness you seek.More
