The pair have a very close relationship, featuring on each other’s social media and making joint TV appearances. 

Kate most recently starred in Channel 4’s The Couple Next Door and is best known for her role in comedy series Spitting Image. 

Emily announced her pregnancy on Saturday, writing on Instagram: ‘Hello Everyone, it’s been a little while but I’m back with some news. I’m delighted to share with you all that we’re having a baby!! 

‘I’ve never been so happy and utterly terrified at the same time. Please go easy on me.

‘Every day is mixed with thrill, fear, joy, hysteria, topped off with a lot of vomiting – a bit like when you’ve just stepped off of the Oblivion at Alton Towers on a hangover.

‘I’ve got to know my body on such an insane level. It’s made me appreciate the one I’ve been given SO much, I’m doing my absolute best to make it a home for the little squid I’m growing. 

‘We can already sense the baby is reclined on a mattress of peanut butter and jam sandwiches in there, demanding more chocolate buttons. 

‘I’m so happy to be writing all of this to you all. You’ve always stuck by me through the years, do stick around to watch me enter my mum era. Christ. Let’s go.’

The TV personality went on a social media blackout after her holiday to Sicily in October.

Since then, Emily has shared very select stories on the platform and hasn’t posted on her grid – with the exception of a bump-free throwback snap on birthday a week before Christmas, and posting photos of her dogs.

Earlier this month, Emily announced she returned to social media to offer suggestion as to why fans had been seeing so little of her on the platform. 

The star said she wanted to ‘focus on actual real life’ after having a ‘hell of a year’.

She added: ‘But I’ll be back properly soon. Hope you are all living your best hungover lives and getting ready for the family rows and deflated wobbly blow up beds.’

Days later, the TV star was back on social media once again to confirm her pregnancy. 

Emily and Alistair have only been pictured together once as they were seen getting cosy in London in September 2023. 

Alistair describes himself on LinkedIn as a Materials scientist and electron microscopist specialising in nuclear and aerospace applications. 

He attended the University of Manchester, where he studied for his PhD and Masters and also worked as a lecturer.

The scientist received his undergraduate degree from Keele University and is thought to be in his mid-to-late 30s.

He is now believed to be a senior consultant for Core Materials at Jacobs – a large US company.

A pal confirmed Emily’s relationship with Alistair has gone from strength to strength and they have moved in together ahead of the arrival of their bundle of joy. 

The insider told The Sun: ‘Emily is delighted by the happy news and has been pleased to tell family and close friends about her little one on the way. It’s the perfect end to her year and she feels over the moon.

‘Emily is more than ready to be a mum and it is something she has dreamed of her whole life. Her relationship with Alistair has gone from strength to strength and they’ve moved into together.

‘Family is everything to her — she comes from a big one herself and is really close to all her siblings — so she can’t wait to start one of her own. They’ve all rallied around her and delighted in the joyous occasion.’

Emily didn’t confirm Alistair’s identity in her pregnancy post – although her publicist has confirmed they are together – but still referenced him by her repeated use of ‘we’. 

The actress and TV personality had been single since she split with her former Big Brother star and tree surgeon ex-boyfriend, Liam McGough, last year.

They sparked rumours that they were back together in July after they spent the evening together with some pals, but sources insisted they were just good friends. 

Emily has previously been linked to a number of men, including singer Harry Styles, comedian and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Seann Walsh, and footballer Jack Grealish.
