Superbitch Tracy Barlow, who has been dating Ryan Connor (Sol Heras), takes pleasure in telling love rival Michelle but it will remain unclear whether she is actually expecting.
Kate Ford told New! magazine: "Tracy doesn't act like a regular person. She does something, then thinks about it later.
"To her, the baby news is great timing. She's now holding all the cards."
The actress added: "It's a very enjoyable situation for [Tracy] and she's having great sex with a bloke 14 years younger than her."
Last month, Ford revealed that Tracy would "eat Ryan alive" in their relationship.
Tracy's anger with Michelle is due to her feelings for Steve McDonald.
