Brooke, 27, who plays Sophie Webster on Corrie, announced in April that she and her Sheffield United footballer beau Kean Bryan were expecting.

Her character has been temporarily written out of the show - and left the cobbles to go and study.

Sally Dynevor - who plays her on-screen mum Sally Metcalfe - recently appeared to let slip Brooke's birthing plan.

“Helen didn't have her children with her and Brooke is off to have her baby, so she has her baby next weekend.”
