Konnie Huq is expecting her first schild Blue Peter

Former Blue Peter and Xtra Factor presenter Konnie Huq is having a baby boy with writer Charlie Brooker.

The pair, who met in August last year, are expecting their bundle of joy next Easter

"Konnie is telling friends how happy she and Charlie are," Huq's agent told the Daily Mail.

"She is definitely pregnant at it is 100 per cent a boy."

The happy couple are currently basking in the critical acclaim of their other offspring - the warped satirical trio of dramas Black Mirror, which they wrote together for Channel 4.

Brooker, known for his sharp wit and barbed humour, announced the news with a link to a music video.

Huq presented Blue Peter for more than 10 years. She recently presented the Xtra Factor before being replaced by Ollie Murs and Caroline Flack.

Brooker, a columnist for the Guardian, presents the comedy show Screenwipe and wrote the 'zombie Big Brother' drama Dead Set.

The couple was married in the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas
