'Blue Peter' host Konnie Huq expecting baby boy

Thursday December 15, 2011

Konnie Huq is overjoyed to be pregnant with her first child.

The TV star, who has hosted ITV2's The Xtra Factor, married broadcaster and screenwriter Charlie Brooker in August of last year.

Former Blue Peter presenter Konnie, 36, is expecting a baby boy.

The presenter was a host of the BBC children's show for a decade, stepping down in 2008. She went on to host The Xtra Factor in 2010 but announced she was leaving earlier this year.

Konnie recently teamed up with her husband to co-write one of his Black Mirror satirical programmes for Channel 4.

It is thought she is due to give birth at Easter. Her agent Jonathan Shalit said: "Konnie is telling friends how happy she and Charlie are."
