TV presenter Konnie Huq better start work on one of those Blue Peter Tracy Islands we all wanted as a kid - she's pregnant with her first child.

The former sticky-back plastic expert returned to our screens last year as the host of The Xtra Factor, but went down like a lead balloon with viewers and was replaced by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.

But the 36-year-old star won't have to keep hassling her agent for another job after finding out she's expecting a little boy with husband Charlie Brooker.

Speaking to The Sun, a pal says: "Konnie and Charlie are over the moon. It is just what they wanted and all their family are thrilled."

Konnie made no secret of her desire to be a mum, explaining how she had put off parenthood to schmooze Simon Cowell for the Xtra Factor job.

She explained at the time: "I was a bit annoyed really because I was getting ready to settle down and have babies."

Congrats Konnie, hope the little fella gets an honorary Blue Peter badge.
