“I’m pregnant with baby number three,” she tells the Daily Mirror. “We’re all very excited.”

At the moment, Olivia is starring in the second series of ITV’s ‘Broadchurch’, and she discussed her pregnancy during a chat about whether she could appear in a movie re-make of short film ‘The Karman Line’.

“I love [the short film’s director] Spike Lee and would certainly take his call, but he’ll have to wait a while before we start anything,” she told the paper. "I’ve got quite a few months left to go, so - if he’s still interested at the end of the year - we can talk. But it’s very flattering that he even suggested it.

“Obviously, the baby is my priority and we’re all very excited. I’m very fortunate that work and family are thriving at the same time. I feel very, very lucky.”

While the current series of ‘Broadchurch’ has received mix reviews, Olivia has been hailed as one of the show’s big successes, and she’s scooped a number of awards and nominations.

Olivia and Ed have two sons, Finn, age nine and seven-year-old Hall.
