Keith Lemon hinted that his Celebrity Juice co-star Fearne Cotton is pregnant for the second time. As he took to the stage to collect the award for best multichannel show at the National Television Awards on Thursday night, Keith said that one of his female co-stars couldn't attend the ceremony as she is pregnant.
"Thanks to all the team at Celebrity Juice," said Keith after accepting the gong from Kris Jenner. "Thanks to Holly [Willoughby] and Fearne, allegedly one of them is pregnant that's why they're not here tonight.
"That's an exclusive," he added.
Fearne's absence at the NTAs prompted speculation that she was pregnant
Both mum-of-one Fearne and mum-of-three Holly were absent from the awards and in spite of Keith's speech neither has confirmed or denied that they are expecting.
Fearne, who has a son called Rex with her husband Jesse Wood, tweeted earlier in the evening that she wouldn't be able to attend the NTAs due to illness.
"Gutted I won't make the NTAs tonight," she wrote. "Been ill all week and am still not right. Go team Celebrity Juice."
"Been sick all week so won't make the NTAs tonight as I'm still feeling rough. Wishing the amazing celebrity juice team all the love and luck in the world! GO TEAM JUICE!!" wrote Fearne
Holly, who gave birth to son Chester in September 2014, posted several selfies throughout the show expressing her joy at Celebrity Juice and This Morning's wins.
"Lil Chester very proud this morning of This Morning," posted Holly alongside a snap of the youngster holding the award. "Thank you again xxx."
