Emmerdale star and former Strictly champion Kelvin Fletcher and his wife Liz are expecting their third child together.

The happy couple said in a statement to the PA news agency: "There’s no question that for the Fletcher family the best thing to come out of 2021 is the news that we are expecting again.

"We are feeling extremely grateful and can’t wait to meet the new addition to our family."

The star also shares daughter Marnie and son Milo with Liz, who he married in 2015.

Emmerdale star Kelvin previously won the 2019 series of Strictly Come Dancing alongside professional partner Oti Mabuse.

Kelvin was a last-minute replacement on the show as Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing suffered from an injury which prevented him from taking part in the series.

The actor first found fame as Andy Sugden on ITV soap Emmerdale, playing the much-loved character from 1996 to 2016.

Next year Kelvin will appear in his very own BBC programme, Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure.

The star who previously struggled to find work after his Strictly success will take part in the six-part series which will see his family "de-camp to the countryside" as they start a new life on a farm located in the Peak District.

Describing the show, the BBC said Kelvin will "get to grips with the notoriously tough world of livestock markets, sheep wrangling and the maintenance of a huge estate with endless outbuildings and an unmanageable cast of animals."

Speaking about his new programme, Kelvin expressed: "This is without doubt the biggest challenge I’ve ever taken on. I’m really excited to share the unforgettable first steps into our new life of farming and adventures."

Kelvin has been very honest about his work struggles with his fans this year and previously took to his Instagram to explain that he had been rejected from a number of roles.

Speaking frankly to his fans on Instagram Live, he explained: "A friend of mine, an actress, just messaged me and said, 'I can't even get a f***ing self-tape'.

"So I know how frustrating those little selfies are because I've been that person thinking, 'Even they are working now.'"

He added: "Let me tell you, I've had about 10 nos in these last few months."

Howerver he then shared his good news regarding his farming programme and told fans "So, keep the faith. Patience is key, as I always say.

"It's only a little gig, so don't be getting too bothered.

For all those out there who, like me, are sick of hearing the nos, I'm sure I'm going to get a lot more nos after this one.

"But I'm enjoying this while it is. Thus, the obligatory trailer selfie."
