Pregnant Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie was all smiles this afternoon as she was pictured for the first time since announcing her pregnancy.

Actress Samia kept the chill at bay in a black puffa coat, but she couldn't take the smile off her face while walking with co-star Sue Cleaver as they prepared to film scenes for the soap in Manchester.

Samia, who plays Maria Connor in the ITV soap, is expecting a child with boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon.

The pair met on Dancing On Ice in 2013, where Samia was a celebrity contestant and Sylvain was one of the professional skaters.

Samia broke the news via Twitter last Thursday, saying: "Me and Sylvain have some very happy news to share… We are having a baby!! Freya can't wait to be a big sister later this year!"
