Gogglebox's George Gilbey to become a dad

'Gogglebox's George Gilbey is set to become a father.

The reality TV star - who won over the hearts of the nation when he appeared on 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2014 - has revealed he and his girlfriend Gemma, who have been dating for nine months, are expecting a little girl in June.

He said of his news: "I'm ecstatic. I am so, so excited. It was amazing when we found out we were having a girl."

The 31-year-old hunk met Gemma, a school deputy head, at Ascot last year and struck up a romance with her almost immediately after realising she was different from the other girls he'd dated following his stint on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

He explained to heat magazine: "I've met a lot of superficial girls who were all over me when I came out of the house. It was terrible, But Gemma was genuine. After we'd been seeing each other for a week, she said, 'It's nice going out and all that, but can't we just stay in together?'

"That's when I knew it was proper, because she wasn't just interested in being seen with me."

Meanwhile, George was forced to turn his back on 'Gogglebox' - a show which films British families watching television - in 2014 after he entered the infamous abode because his stint was deemed a rule breaker by bosses.

However, almost two years after he walked away from the camera, the electrician is set to open the doors to his family home once again as him, his mother Linda and her husband Pete - who became an instant hit when they joined the show in 2013 - will return for the new series.
