I can't tell you how humbled we are. To the next chapter with our baby girl!!!" Ahead of the episode, Binky had teased fans about the big reveal, tweeting: "[Boy] or [girl]… Josh & I haven't confirmed anything yet so tune in later!" Viewers then watched the pair attend their lavish reveal party, which featured a giant cake topped with the sign: 'Boy or Girl?' The party included blue and pink-themed refreshments, and guests were able to hedge their bets on the gender of the baby, before the couple revealed they will be welcoming a baby girl later this year.

The Made in Chelsea star confirmed the exciting news on Twitter

Monday's episode came one week after Binky and Josh made a joint appearance on This Morning to talk about their baby news and their rekindled romance. "There's no secret that we've had our ups and downs… we just happen to live ours out on camera," Binky, who announced her pregnancy exclusively in HELLO! back in January, told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. Josh added: "It has taken a while. We discussed things and the most important thing was that we didn't get back together for the child, that's the worst possible thing you could do. You get back together because the love is there and the relationship is right. So it was a case of taking it slow… I think when a baby comes into the picture, you both grow up and you change together. And the changes in myself and Binks since finding out this news is what makes it so special."
