Kristina Rihanoff announces she's pregnant on Celebrity Big Brother

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Strictly Come Dancing pro Kristina Rihanoff has announced she is expecting her first child.

Big congrats are in order after the 38-year-old revealed the news in the Celebrity Big Brother house this evening after gathering the housemates.

She told them: "Is there a moment I can take to say something? It's a bit weird, but something happened in my life over Christmas and I didn't know how to deal with that.

"As we're living as one family now, and we're all looking out for one another, it happened to be that I found out that my boyfriend and I are going to have a little one."

She added: "I found out over Christmas. It was on my mind, I'm almost three months."

The announcement was met with cheers and hugs by her fellow housemates ahead of the first eviction Friday night.

Kristina's boyfriend is of course her former Strictly celeb partner Ben Cohen and their relationship has been the focus of tabloid headlines this past year following Ben's split from his wife.

Back to Celebrity Big Brother and it was revealed earlier today that Kristina is one of three housemates facing eviction this week.

Either she, Nancy Dell'Olio or Winston McKenzie will become the first celebrity to be evicted from the series after less than week inside the house.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5 with the live eviction airing Friday from 9PM and also from 10:30PM.
