The 36-year-old actress, who also starred in sketch show 3 Non-Blondes, is reportedly due to give birth next month and is currently on maternity leave.

Tameka's character Kim has not appeared on screen for some time and writers have explained her absence by saying she is on a cruise with a man she met in the kebab shop.

Tonight, Kim will appear in a Skype conversation with her sister Denise, however she will only be seen from the waist up!

Tameka's rep confirmed to The Mirror that she is pregnant.

A source added: 'There is not long to go now until the birth so she is taking some time off because it is her first baby and she wants to get everything ready."
