Former TOWIE co-star Ferne McCann was quick to congratulate her best friend in her own sweet social media message.

Saying Danielle will make an “amazing mummy”, the 29-year-old wrote: “My bestie’s news is out. I can’t tell you how happy & excited I am!

“Sunday is going to have a new little friend. Auntie Dan Dan is going to be Mamma...an amazing Mummy for sure.”

This comes after Danielle - who split from her ex-boyfriend footballer Daniel Spiller back in August - revealed she’d found love with her "best friend of 22 years" in a sweet Instagram post in September. 

Sharing a pic of them together on Instagram, Danielle wrote: "Life has a funny way of working out just when I decided to give up on love my friend of 22 years swept me off my feet.

"You don't find love it finds you, it's got a little a to do with destiny & fate, and what's written in the stars."

Danielle is following in the footsteps of former TOWIE stars Lydia Bright and Lucy Mecklenburgh who are both expecting babies early next year.
