“Tracy’s in total shock,” says Amy. “She thinks she’s been careful. She’s on the pill, so it does come as a massive surprise. Especially as she and Nate have not been together that long.”

Jurell, who plays Nate, says: “Until this point they’re in a good place. They’re taking things steady and are in the honeymoon phase.”

Tracy endured heartache with David

For Tracy an abortion is out of the question. She previously had a termination after her then husband David left her for Maya.

“Going through that with David was something Tracy never envisaged having to do but it was the right thing to do at the time,” says Amy. “But the thought of doing it again is inconceivable; for her another abortion is not an option.”

How will Nate react to the news that he’s going to be a dad? And will this bring them closer together or tear them apart? And how will the rest of the village react when they hear Tracy and Nate's big news?
