Pregnant Frankie pulls out of Strictly tour

Strictly Come Dancing star Frankie Bridge will not be taking part in the show's UK tour after announcing she is expecting her second child.

Frankie, pictured here in a pair of shimmering tights , is one fifth of girl group The Saturdays. Together with her dance partner Kevin Clifton, she came second in the BBC Strictly Come Dancing final, pipped to the post by TV presenter Caroline Flack and Pasha Kovalev shortly before Christmas.

The 25-year-old singer and her husband, the former England, Chelsea, Manchester City and Southampton footballer Wayne Bridge, had their first child in October 2013 when she gave birth to a boy they named Parker.

She tweeted the news that they are expecting their second child on Thursday. She has hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe sickness suffered by many mums-to-be, including the Duchess of Cambridge.

As a result she will not be taking part in the Strictly tour and its organisers have yet to name the dancer who will take her place in the live shows.
