EastEnders’ Louisa Lytton was downing tequila shots 24 hours before finding out she’s pregnant

EASTENDERS' Louisa Lytton revealed she was downing tequila the day before she discovered she was pregnant.

The actress appeared on Loose Women to discuss her pregnancy a week after revealing she and fiancé Ben Bhanvra are expecting their first child.

She said: "I'm through the first hurdle of the 12 weeks so I'm feeling a lot better now.

"We actually found out on Boxing Day which was really nice.

"I had been drinking tequila the night before, so…

She added: "I've not stopped eating junk food, constantly for 12 weeks. I've had dinner and then gone for a drive-thru.

"My appetite just went through the roof."

The couple started trying for a baby after coronavirus cancelled their dream wedding.

The 32-year-old soap star was devastated she couldn't say "I do" to Ben and decided to start their family instead.

Louisa fell pregnant before Boris Johnson announced his roadmap out of lockdown, and it turns out their wedding could have gone ahead after all.

She said: "We've cancelled the wedding.

"I said to Ben, 'let's start trying because it doesn't look like the wedding is happening'.

"Then we fell pregnant and officially our wedding could go ahead but it's too late now.

"It's all gone out the window, but it's fine."

Louisa revealed her baby news by showing off her growing baby bump to fans on Mother's Day.

This week, the pregnant actress's character Ruby Allen will discover she has endometriosis after her devastating miscarriage.

She has been filming the heartbreaking storyline at the same time as growing her baby bump.

Louisa admitted: "It's a very strange time for me, but it's the job and it's no one's fault."

On Mother's Day, Louisa posted a video that began with the card that she got her own mum, which read: "Just a little note to say, there's a baby on the way".

It went on to show her and fiancé Ben Bhanvra preparing to become parents – with Ben reading pregnancy books, and their pet pooch posing in a cute neckerchief that reads: "My parents are getting me a human."

Louisa captioned the sweet post: "Dear Mum, if I am a fraction of the mother you are, I know I’ll be the best.

"You have held my hand for 32 years, you have taught me right from wrong, corrected my spelling, and helped me see the light at the end of every single tunnel.

"And now you will guide me to becoming a mummy. (Just try not to move yourself in or Ben might leave.

"Happy Mother’s Day All, to those that are here, that are not with us in person but with us every moment and to those on a journey."
