Many followers will now be awaiting Rachel's next social media post, hopefully announcing the arrival of her little one.

The 35-year-old is expecting her second child with her husband, Pasha Kovalev, a former Strictly dancer who she met on the show back in 2013.

The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Maven, in June 2019 and tied the knot in Las Vegas that same year.
