Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans says his wife is sure one of the Strictly girls is pregnant, but which one is it?

Uh-oh, Chris Evans has started an almighty Strictly Come Dancing rumour! The Radio 2 DJ let slip that his wife Natasha Shishman thinks someone on the BBC dance show is expecting.

‘My wife, and she’s good at this stuff, she thinks someone on Strictly is pregnant. Now I’m not going to say who, because I don’t want to get in trouble, but she has an inkling that someone is expecting,’ Chris said on his Breakfast show yesterday. ‘[My wife] kept saying, “Look, look, look at her”. Not only does she have a little bump – and it was a gorgeous little bump – but my wife also said she was glowing, and that at one point she looked a little bit vague, like she had more important things on her mind.’

Ooo-er! But the question on everyone’s lips is – who may have a little bun in the oven?

A few of Chris’ listeners agreed with his wife Tash – but still kept the name secret. ‘Yes I agreed with your wife,’ one listener said. While another said, ‘I have an inkling too that a certain dancer is with child.’ So, a dancer? A professional or a dancing contestant, we hear you ask.

Following Chris’ show numerous suspicions popped up online. ‘The way the wardrobe department has been dressing Caroline Flack had raised suspicions in my mind. They certainly want to re-think their ideas if there isn’t a physical reason why they are making such an otherwise petite woman looks relatively dumpy around the torso,’ one fan wrote online.

There was also a lot of speculation surrounding Polish professional Ola Jordan too – who is dancing with Steve Backshall. A source close to the dancer allegedly told a Sunday paper: ‘This will be Ola’s last year for a while, if not forever. She and James have been talking seriously over the past few months about trying for a baby they’ve decided that they will do so.

‘Having a family is their priority, they have been married for 11 years and are definitely ready.’

But the 32-year-old was quick to slam the reports. ‘So just need to put it out there!’ she wrote on twitter. ‘NO I’m NOT pregnant! ….obviously just FAT! Lol!!!!! #onthediet.”

Could host Tess Daly be a possible contender? She already has two daughters – Phoebe, 10, and Amber, five, but insisted last year that she’s not interested in adding to her brood, saying: ‘Two’s perfect for me. Two is ideal, three requires a people carrier.’

Mum-of-three Claudia Winkleman has admitted she is broody but revealed there is one obstacle – her husband has banned her from having any more.

She said in 2012: ‘I’d like another baby but my husband has banned me from having more. It is probably a good thing as otherwise I would have nine more.’

So the mystery continues – we’ll be watching VERY closely next week.
