Married At First Sight star Ben Jardine has been in and out of the headlines ever since he starred in the show at the back end of last year. Not only he is rumoured to be heading into the Celebrity Big Brother house tomorrow evening (16th August) when the show launches, but he's now revealed he's set to become a DAD.

Ben, who married Stephanie on the show, admitted to cheating on her earlier this year, and whilst they'd been the only surviving couple from the third series, they split soon after they'd stopped filming for the show.

In an interview with The Sun, Ben revealed that he's expecting his first child with an as-yet-unnamed woman, adding that she's due to give birth at the end of the year.

The 36-year-old said: "They say, 'God loves to turn purposeless chaos into something beautiful' and He (or She!) really has in my life!

"I have been blessed. Out of all the chaos of this past year, something beautiful has happened, which I will forever protect and be grateful for. I never thought it would happen to me. Everything happens for a reason.

"It's going to make a man out of me and I'll be a great dad."
