Pete, 26, had revealed he was going to be a dad during an episode of Gogglebox earlier this year.

The TV star showed his sister Sophie – who appears with him on the Channel 4 show – a scan picture, saying: "Isn’t it mad? I am actually going to be a dad to somebody."

He later amused fans when he posted a picture of the scan on Instagram with an image of his face stuck on it.
