Doctors star Elisabeth Dermot Walsh has revealed that she is pregnant.

The actress, who plays fan favourite Zara Carmichael on the BBC daytime soap, announced the news on This Morning today (April 24).

Doctors fans saw Zara welcome the arrival of a baby boy two months ago, while in real life Dermot Walsh is due to give birth in May.

She said today: "In two weeks' time, with a bit of luck, I'm having my own baby. The most fun was when it was really secret and I was pregnant as Zara and pregnant as Elisabeth, but out of sync!

"I had to do all the labour scenes when I hadn't told anyone at work yet that I was actually pregnant. So that was dramatic!"

Dermot Walsh also praised the way Zara and Daniel Granger's (Matthew Chambers) IVF storyline was handled on Doctors last year.

She commented: "It was, I think, very well done. It was very difficult for them and it didn't work the first time, which is nice and realistic. People go into this sometimes thinking that it's just a miracle, but sometimes it's a struggle for people to make that work.

"And now they have their beautiful baby, it's not a happily ever after at all. They're really both struggling as parents and I think they feel guilty that they're not more grateful that it worked!"

Doctors airs weekdays at 1.45pm on BBC One.
