In the interview, which is available to read in this week's Closer Magazine, Josie said, "We are so excited! I feel so relaxed and calm. Although I think I'm still in shock. "We left our first scan and I just looked at Terry and said, 'What have we done?!' Life is going to change a lot, but we are so happy."

The happy news comes after Josie suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in November last year.

Josie shot to fame when she appeared on the 11th series of Big Brother and fell in love with her fellow housemate John James Parton. Despite starring in their own TV show, Josie and Australian John James later split just one year later.

Josie then dated her ex-fiancé, Luke Sanwoe, for six years, but was left heartbroken in May 2017 when he dumped her.

After knowing family friend Terry for over 20 years, Josie decided to get to know him better and has since been incredibly loved up. Josie has previously started how supportive Terry is and revealed how he always tells her how much of an amazing mum she will be.
