Coronation Street's Tracy Barlow is to reveal she's pregnant with toyboy lover Ryan Connor's baby.
The scheming brunette has been dating the kebab shop worker - played by Sol Heras - for the past few weeks in order to wind up his mother Michelle (Kym Marsh) and now she will announce she is carrying his child, much to her delight.
Kate Ford - who plays the mother-of-one - 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.''
Tracy was left furious when her ex Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) picked factory worker Michelle over her and now she will do anything to get back at her arch-rival.
Kate, 35, also revealed how she feels old starring alongside 21-year-old Sol, but knows her alter-ego loves it.
She added: ''Playing a cougar makes me feel old, but apparently boys find them quite sexy.
''It's a very enjoyable situation for her [Tracy] and she's having great sex with a bloke 14 years younger than her.''
