Metcalfe – who plays Mercedes McQueen in the Channel 4 show – announced earlier this year that she was expecting her first child, but said she was not going to find out the baby’s sex.

She told OK! magazine: “I feel like I’m the one who’s got to go through labour, so if I’ve got a little surprise at the end, it might get me through however many hours it’s going to be!”
