The Strictly Come Dancing Star was met with cheers when she broke the news at around 8pm.

The 38-year-old said: "There was something (that) happened in my life before I came into the house over Christmas, and obviously I thought it's very private news, you know but because we are living as one family now and everybody is sort of supporting one another now, it happened to be that I found that my boyfriend and I are going to have a little one."

The Russian dancer, who faces eviction on Friday, became tearful after being congratulated, hugged and kissed by her housemates.

She added: "Well I found over Christmas. Thank you guys, I just didn't know how to break it, what to say, when to say, it played on my mind and I wanted everyone to hear."

Former Hollyoaks actress and fellow housemate Stephanie Davis asked how far along she was, to which Rihanoff replied she was "almost three months".

PR man Jonathan Cheban said: "That's so exciting,"

Rihanoff met her partner, rugby star Ben Cohen, when they were partnered on the BBC One show last year. Cohen split from his wife of 10 years Abby following the show.

A spokesman for the mother-to-be said: "Kristina and Ben were surprised and delighted to find out that she was pregnant shortly before she entered the Big Brother house. Kristina is well and looking forward to being a mum."
