Ritchie, who denied reports of her pregnancy in January, said in a statement: "It is with great excitement that Stuart and I announce we are expecting our first child.

"We can assure you any secrecy up to this moment has been nothing more than us protecting what is most sacred - a new life that was far from reaching its 12 week milestone.

"Thank you to all who have respected our privacy over these past weeks allowing us the privilege every couple deserves - to share the wonderful news ourselves.

"It really is such a special time for us and we couldn't be happier!"

Ritchie played Summer Bay's Sally Fletcher for over 20 years before departing the role in 2008.

The character returned to the soap last year for an eight-week stint to coincide with the show's 25th anniversary. An emotional storyline saw her battle to save daughter Pippa, who was suffering from a terminal illness.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 in the UK, and weekdays at 7pm on Network Seven in Australia. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
