Les Dennis is to become a dad for the third time.

The former 'Family Fortunes' host is said to be thrilled with the news after his wife Claire lost a child in an ectopic pregnancy earlier this year.

It will be a sibling for the couple's first child, two-year-old Eleanor.

The TV star's spokesperson confirmed the news, adding: "Claire has just had the 12-week scan and everything is fine."

Les - who has a 31-year-old son Phillip from his first wife Lynne Webster - married his life coach Claire last year in a star-studded ceremony.

The pair welcomed 160 guests to their nuptials in North London including Bob Hoskins, actress Michelle Collins, entertainer Lionel Blair and Loose 'Women' presenters Carol McGiffin, Sherrie Hewson and Denise Welch.

Their young daughter Eleanor was their flower girl.

Les - who is currently starring in a touring version of Hairspray - was previously married to Lynne, but their marriage ended in 1990. In 1995 Les wed actress Amanda Holden, before divorcing in 2003.
