Robot Wars star Angela, who has been married to husband Roy Horgan for three years, also shared the happy news over on her Twitter account, sharing a funny photo of an unhappy-looking orangutan which was captioned: "'Get pregnant' they said. 'You'll glow' they said." Alongside it, she wrote: "So. I've been baking for 6 months now and I've made a bun. It's currently in the oven and will be ready by springtime.
