The ITV soap star made the announcement just weeks after resuming her role as Rachel Healy on Corrie, taking to social media to share the joyous news with fans.

In a sweet Instagram snap, Verity can be seen standing in what appears to be a lake surrounded by trees, up to her thighs in water, wearing a red swimming suit with her blossoming bump on show.

Captioning the upload, the excited mum-to-be penned, "Preggers. It hasn’t been an easy journey; so aware it isn’t for so many people.

Verity was quickly bombarded by plenty of kind words and supportive messages from fellow celeb friends when she shared her wonderful pregnancy news.

Hollyoaks star Rachel Adedeji commented, "Beautiful! Congratulations hun 😍❤️"

 "What an absolute BABE 😍," added actress Lisa McGrillis.

Fans also made sure to pen their well wishes, with one saying, "OMG! Congratulations you beautiful thing ❤️❤️❤️😍 what lovely news 🥂 🙌"

Another commented, "Aww congrats! Beautiful photo 😍 "

Verity left the ITV show after shooting Eileen Grimshaw's partner Jan Lozinski and leaving him for dead but made a re-appearance just weeks ago, at the start of August.

However fans are convinced she won't be on the soap for much longer, what with her pregnancy news.
