Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins is pregnant with her first child.

The 39-year-old, who signed up to launch the ITV show in late April, received cheers from her co-hosts as she made her announcement on air.

Hawkins – previously a familiar face on Sky News' Sunrise show – told viewers after the programme featured the story of a woman whose waist had grown to 55ins during her first pregnancy.

She responded: "I'm pregnant, I'm happy to announce, expecting a baby – and that kind of story fills me with dread. I'm hoping I won't reach that record."

The presenting team already have seven children between them – Susanna Reid has three sons, Ben Shephard two sons, and Sean Fletcher has a son and a daughter.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
