CBB's Kristina Rihanoff had big news for housemates last night

We are only three days into Celebrity Big Brother but already there has been quite the big announcement for housemates in what might just be a first for the BB house.

Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff had some big news last night as she told her fellow celebs that she was in fact pregnant. Rihanoff is having the baby with her boyfriend and former Strictly dance partner Ben Cohen and the pair had only just found out before she entered the house.

She said: "There was something [that] happened over Christmas... and I thought, 'It's very private news.'

"But because we are living as one family now and everybody is sort of supporting one another now, it happened to be that I found that my boyfriend and I are going to have a little one."

All the housemates were delighted with the news and congratulated the dancer, who is almost three months gone.

A spokesman for the mother-to-be said: "Kristina and Ben were surprised and delighted to find out that she was pregnant shortly before she entered the Big Brother house. Kristina is well and looking forward to being a mum."


Rihanoff is the first housemate to enter the house while pregnant but a Channel 5 spokesperson has assured that there would be procedures put in place for her care.

Kristina is also up for eviction tonight alongside Winston McKenzie and Nancy Dell'Olio, although we have a feeling she won't have much to worry about this evening. Either way, when she does get out, herself and Emma Willis will be able to compare pregnancy notes as the host is currently expecting herself,

You can catch Kristina's announcement on the eviction show tonight on TV3 but check out a preview clip of it below;
