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!"
After being inundated with messages from fans and her co-stars, Samia added: "Sylvain and I are overwhelmed by everyone who has sent us their congrats and kind wishes we've read them all, thank you SO much!"
Samia is already mum to daughter Freya from a previous relationship.
