Paula Lane's pregnancy creates 'nightmare' for Coronation Street bosses

Paula Lane has created a "nightmare" for 'Coronation Street' bosses after she announced last week she's pregnant again.

The 29-year-old actress is currently tangled up in a major storyline after her alter-ego Kylie Platt accidentally murdered her ex-boyfriend Callum Logan (Sean Ward) late last year.

But filming for the popular soap has now been thrown into chaos and writers have been forced to frantically come up with a different outcome for the plot after Paula recently revealed she and her husband Tom Shaw are set to welcome their second child into the world later this summer.

A show source told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's absolutely wonderful for Paula and everyone on the show is thrilled for her and Tom. But it has created something of a nightmare for our writers. Paula is currently at the heart of the show with the Callum murder storyline. The scriptwriters are going to have to sit down and think of new ways of playing the fallout."

Meanwhile, Paula was bombarded with congratulatory messages over the weekend when she revealed her 13-month-old son Arthur will soon become a big brother.

She wrote on Twitter: "News just in... The new addition to the Shaw clan will be arriving summer time and @SirTomShaw and I are thrilled! #doubletrouble (sic)."
