Fans were quick to express their excitement in the comments section, with one person writing: "Omg omg omg what is going to happen I can’t. Wait any longer!!!!" while another added: "Yayayayayayayya!!! Can’t WAITTT!!"

Other fans expressed their confusion about the baby bump, questioning how Charmaine is still pregnant after five seasons.

One person commented: "Does this mean you are still pregnant at the end of season five. You have been pregnant since season one," while another added: "After four seasons the twins will be born each at three years old."

A third person wrote: "Please tell me this is from the first episodes and you have those babies this season!!!"

Charmaine's baby bump can be explained by the lack of time jumps between each season. This means the hairdresser will be five months pregnant at the beginning of series five, which will pick up where season four left off.
