Big Brother's Louise Cliffe and Stuart Pilkington are expecting a baby

Former Big Brother housemates Louise Cliffe and Stuart Pilkington are now a couple... and expecting a baby.

Louise appeared on Series 12 of the show in 2011 while Stu was a housemate back in Series 9 of 2008.

During her time in the house, Louise struck up a bit of a relationship with then fellow housemate Jay McKray and the pair married shortly afte the show, only to divorce a year later.

Now Louise says she's excited be starting a family with 'best friend' Stuart.

The pair told the Daily Mail: "We're over the moon to announce that we're having a baby. After being best friends for years then finally getting together, we're delighted to now become a little family."

They added: "How exciting to go into 2017 knowing in advance it's definitely going to be the best year of our lives - we feel so blessed."

It's certainly not the first BB baby: Big Brother 7's Grace Adams-Short and Mikey Dalton have been married ever since they got together on the show and have two children.

And last year's housemate Harry Amelia is currently pregnant with Nick Henderson, although the couple are no longer together.
