The baby boy was born on Friday morning at 10.30am at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, a spokesman for the couple said.

Konnie says their baby, who weighs 7lbs 6ozs, has "cute spiky brown hair like his dad has - but less grey".

The spokesman said the new baby boy looks exactly like their first child Covey when he was born.

Konnie is a former Blue Peter presenter and Charlie is known for his BBC shows Screenwipe and Newswipe.

He also wrote hit shows A Touch of Cloth and Black Mirror for Sky1 and Channel 4.
