Goodger first announced she was pregnant in January, saying it was the “hardest secret I’ve ever kept!”

The former Dancing On Ice and Celebrity Big Brother contestant was one of the original cast members of the ITV2 show The Only Way Is Essex and the first two series of the show mostly centred on Goodger’s relationship with her then-boyfriend Mark Wright.
