Strictly Come Dancing star Ellie Taylor announces pregnancy

Strictly Come Dancing star Ellie Taylor has announced she is expecting her second child.

The Snog, Marry Avoid icon and Ted Lasso actress shared the news with followers in a sweet Instagram post on Friday.

Alongside a gorgeous snap of her daughter kissing her growing bump, Ellie wrote: ‘Excited. Terrified. Grateful. Hungry.’

She admitted that pregnancy has been a ‘funny’ topic for her in recent years and she had found it ‘tricky following prego people online.’

The star urged ‘anyone in a similar headspace’ who could be bothered by ‘inevitable baby spam’ bound to follow to ‘be kind to your brainbox and mute or unfollow me.’

‘I hope you’ll be back but whatever your situation, I wish you love and clarity as you continue to navigate your own journey.’

Ellie and her husband Phil Black, an international new correspondent, are already parents to five-year-old Valentina, who they keep out of the spotlight, posting only rare photos of her on social media with her face covered.

The couple married in 2014 and welcomed Valentina four years later.

Comedian Ellie took part in the 2022 series of Strictly with professional dance partner Johannes Radebe, eventually being eliminated after facing Fleur East in the dance-off.

She revealed in an interview with Lorraine Kelly shortly afterwards that her daughter was ‘annoyed’ she had been booted off the show as she got ‘really into it.’

‘She knows all the judges’ names,’ Ellie said at the time.

‘She has a lot of opinions and she is quite annoyed I won’t win. Not sad, but because she wanted the Glitterball.’
