Broadcaster and journalist Victoria Derbyshire, 52, took to social media to share a hilarious exchange between herself and former EastEnders actor Shane Richie, 57. The actor revealed he had tuned in to listen to his friend on BBC Radio 2, but was left stunned when he heard her talking about pregnancy. However, the star soon realised that the journalist was in fact just reading out an email which had been sent in from a listener, with the broadcaster branding it a “miracle” if she were to fall pregnant now.

First thing I heard was, ‘I am pregnant’

Sharing the hilarious exchange with her 121,000 Instagram followers, the star posted a screenshot of the message.

The EastEnders actor wrote: “Sweet baby Jesus… literally turned on radio and first thing I heard was, ‘I am pregnant,’ then realised you were reading out a letter,”(sic) followed by a series of laughing face emojis.

The broadcaster replied: “Haha! That [would] literally be a miracle!”

Shane and Victoria struck up a friendship after starring on last year’s series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, in Gwrych Castle, north Wales.

The former EastEnders actor and the BBC broadcaster got along famously, with the former even promising to introduce Victoria to her childhood crush.

After Victoria revealed she fancied Nick Heyward from the 80s band Haircut 100, Shane casually revealed that he is acquainted with the singer and could set up a meeting.

He said: “He’s a mate of mine. He’d love the fact that you like him.

“You’d just lick his face and say, ‘I love you Nick’. And he’s still a good-looking man,” he added.

Two years ago the journalist candidly opened up about her battle with depression and anxiety which affected how she thought about her job, before suffering a second spell which she says was brought on by the menopause.

Speaking at the Women Mean Business Live in London event, the broadcaster explained that battling two bouts of depression had left her feeling “knackered.”

The illness also left her questioning her ability to continue with her broadcasting jobs.

Speaking about that period in her life, the presenter said: “I was getting to a point where I was overwhelmed and waking up at 2am then not sleeping between 2am and 4.30am when I usually get up.

“I was absolutely knackered and getting slightly anxious. I thought, ‘I’m not good at my job anymore,'” she added.

Four years prior, the TV host publicly shared her battle with breast cancer.

Following a mastectomy and chemotherapy after being diagnosed with stage 2 lobular breast cancer, the star was given the all clear in 2016.

Victoria met husband Mark Sandell at BBC Radio 5 Live and they were together for 15 years before they tied the knot.

They married in 2018 during a private ceremony with close family and friends.

The couple went on to have two sons together, named Oliver and Joe.

Last July, the broadcaster spoke candidly of how she prepared Mark to bring up their sons on his own.

After being told she needed a CT scan on her body and brain following her breast cancer diagnosis, Victoria feared her husband would raise their children alone.

“I thought, ‘Okay, it’s spread. It’s spread to my brain. That’s it. There is no hope. That’s it’,” she said.

“Got home, and I said to Mark, ‘You might have to bring up the boys on your own’,” she added.
