Tina Malone is pregnant aged 50

Tina Malone announced her pregnancy on This Morning

Shameless actress Tina Malone has announced she is pregnant at the age of 50.

Tina and her husband Paul Chase, who is 19 years her junior, married in 2010 and decided to try for a baby two years ago.

The actress said she is four weeks pregnant after choosing to undergo IVF in Cyprus where donors can still remain anonymous.

The actress, who already has a daughter, was considered too old to have NHS fertility treatment in the UK.

Two embryos were implanted and Tina said she would be "ecstatic" if she is expecting twins.

"Fingers crossed we're having twins and it's a boy and a girl," she said on ITV's This Morning. "I'd be ecstatic."

Tina, who recently competed in celebrity diving show Splash!, has lost 11 stone and met her husband at boot camp.
