Kristina gathered the housemates together to tell them.

The Strictly Come Dancing star broke the news to her housemates at around 8pm on Thursday evening (7 January), in scenes that will air on tomorrow night's show.

She gathered them together to say: "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."

Kristina became tearful as she continued: "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."

She said she's nearly three months.

A rep for Kristina 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."

Professional dancer Kristina met rugby player Ben when they were paired together on Strictly Come Dancing in 2013.

A tweet sent from Kristina's official account said: "Words aren't enough to express our joy at @KRihanoff @RugbyBenCohen amazing news Congrats, much love & happiness."
