SATURDAYS member Frankie Bridge has announced that she is pregnant with her second child.

Frankie made the announcement to her fans on Twitter this afternoon.

She tweeted: "So excited to tell you that Wayne & I are expecting another baby later this year. We cant wait for Parker to have a little brother or sister.

"Sadly I'm really unwell with my pregnancy and won't be able to take part in the Strictly tour. I'm SO sorry. I was so looking forward to it."

She is believed to be suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, the crippling morning sickness which also affected Kate Middleton during both her pregnancies.

She said in a statement: "Although this is such an incredible time for us as a family, due to health reasons I am sadly unable to go on the Strictly tour as planned.

"I'm devastated that I'm missing out, as I loved Strictly so much and was so looking forward to joining everyone again in all those fabulous arenas. Thanks for the warm messages I've already received, they are really appreciated."

However her pregnancy will not affect band The Saturdays, with management insisting they will continue on.

Tipperary native Una Foden is also currently pregnant - she's expecting her second child with rugby player husband Ben Foden.

She is currently appearing as a coach on the fourth series of The Voice of Ireland - she made her first appearance on the show on Sunday night.
