Take Me Out Couple Expecting A Baby Together

A couple who met on the ITV dating show Take Me Out are expecting a baby together.

Gemma Gordon, 27, and Gavin Ellis, 28, found true love on the fictional Isle of Fernando's and are set to get married in March.

The couple, who appeared on the show in February 2013, will be the first contestants to tie the knot.

The show, hosted by Paddy McGuinness, sees single men trying to impress 30 single girls, eventually selecting their favourites from those who still have their lights left on.

Gemma impressed Gavin by performing 30 press-ups in a minute, and winning herself a date.

The pair were whisked away to the Isle of Fernando's where they fell in love and moved in together in Chorley, Lancashire, a few months later.

Gavin told his local paper: "There were 30 girls, but Gemma really stood out to me.

"She is a beautiful girl and as soon as I got to know her we just clicked and I felt like there was something special there."

Gavin, from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, proposed Gemma in April last year but the couple kept it a secret until now.

With the return of the show for its seventh season last weekend, they decided to announce their happy news and the Take Me Out team were quick to Tweet their congratulations.

Just a few weeks before their wedding in March this year, the couple will be expecting the arrival of their first child together - a baby girl.

Gemma's daughters, Grace, eight and Olivia, five, will be bridesmaids.

All eyes will be on whether Take Me Out host Paddy - who is a dad of twins - will be guest on the big day.

Better buy a hat!
