Pregnant star will take a long break from work

Pregnant Charlotte Church is set to record two series of her TV show back-to-back so she can take plenty of time off work when her baby arrives.

The 21-year-old, who announced last week she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Gavin Henson, 25, has made the deal with Channel Four.

‘There was supposed to be a gap between series, but Charlotte wants so make them without a break so she’s free after the birth,’ a friend tells The Sun.

‘She feels being a hands-on mum is very important.’
