Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley has revealed that she hasn't decided on a name for her unborn son yet. The 31-year-old, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Tom Pitfield in March, said that she is waiting until he arrives to name him in an exclusive Twitter chat with HELLO! Online.
The excited mum-to-be told fans that she has already bought furniture and painted the nursery ahead of her baby's arrival in spring, and has had cravings for "mushy peas, samphire, gravy, tomato based soups" throughout her pregnancy.
Catherine will be on maternity leave from her role as barmaid Eva Price for around four months, after the screening of "dramatic scenes" that she described as the "favourite" she's ever filmed.

No doubt the actress will miss her Coronation Street colleagues including Antony Cotton, Paula Lane, Debbie Rush and Ryan Thomas, who she said she is closest to on the show.
The HELLO! Online blogger is a fitness fanatic thanks in part to her personal trainer fiancé Tom, and she hasn’t let her routine slip while she is pregnant. Catherine told one Twitter user that while it is a lot harder to exercise now she is nearing the end of her pregnancy, for the first five months her training routine was "fairly similar", and she would even take kettle bells if she was going to be stranded on a deserted island.
When asked for her top fitness and healthy eating tips, Catherine wrote: "I follow a Paleo lifestyle, trying to always eat from the land and do a mix of weights/HIT training".

Catherine announced her pregnancy in an exclusive interview with HELLO! magazine in August. The actress said she was incredibly excited for the new arrival as she has always wanted to be a mother.
"I have felt strongly that being a mother is something I am supposed to do and when I met Tom I absolutely knew that he was the right person. It feels like the right time."
