Emmerdale star Anna Nightingale is best known for playing feisty Andrea Tate on the ITV soap, and the actress is over the moon after exclusively announcing to OK that she's expecting her second baby with fiancé Daren Dixon.
But Anna assures us that she won't be leaving the show anytime soon and has a number of exciting storylines coming up for her "incredible" character.
The 30-year-old – who is already a mother to four-year old daughter Autumn – revealed: "Obviously I can’t give too much away but it’s safe to say fans need to watch out, there’s some explosive stuff coming up!
"There’s going to be a lot of drama before I get to go off to have this little one. Watch this space, that’s all I can say!"
Anna joined the soap in 2019 as Andrea Tate, arriving as Jamie Tate's secret wife and mother of his child Millie, who he had been hiding from his estranged mum Kim Tate, played by Claire King.
Opening up about taking on the dramatic role, Anna explained: "It feels like you have about 15 jobs in one because there’s so much depth and complexity with Andrea, she’s an incredible character to take on."
Andrea has gone through a dramatic time this year on the soap after divorcing Jamie. But Anna says the drama has only empowered her feisty character.
"She’s been involved in some really big stuff but I think she’s been a lot happier," she shared.
"She’s been empowered by the fact she got the house through the divorce settlement. She’s got firm friends in the village, she feels like she’s relaxed and finding her feet.
The star adds: "I think she’s quite trusting in her nature and inevitably that’s always going to come round and bite her on the bum somehow!"

Anna also revealed that her real-life pregnancy won't become a storyline for her character Andrea and that they'll worked hard to conceal her bump on screen.
"Yeah, it’s not going to be part of my character’s journey, so we have to hide it," she continued. "Some days you can really see it and some days you can’t.
"So there’s been a lot of me sitting at tables or carrying a well placed bag or clipboard!"
Opening up to OK! about her second pregnancy, Anna revealed it was "divine timing".
And the actress admitted it wasn't just hard for her to keep the pregnancy a secret at first, as her daughter Autumn has a habit of blurting things out.
