Louisa, 32, and Ben, 30, have had to postpone their wedding twice amid coronavirus restrictions that made planning and hosting the big day a nightmare.

But now planning is finally getting underway again – with bump in tow.

“Last night we went to a Wedding show . . With a bump, not what we had planned but it made it even more special!” she wrote on Instagram.

“I had nothing to wear, nothing fits so wore a dress back to front to cover bump and pinned it so I didn’t flash

Louisa Lytton said she and Ben Bhanvra had decided to cancel their wedding

“Ben ate sushi and drank I had rice and watched 🤣 we saw our wedding band perform live, we just need to figure out the wedding now!

“But at least we have the music, priorities right? Date nights are back and it feels so good.”

Last month Louisa admitted she had cancelled her wedding after months of rearranging their plans.

“We’ve cancelled the wedding altogether now,” she told OK!.

The star went to a wedding dress fitting before abandoning the wedding plan

“We’ve decided to scrap the whole thing and start again with our plans.

“We’re going to have the baby and focus on that and then get married once we’re ready.

“We’d already postponed it twice and the wedding we were going to have is massive – we had nearly 200 people.

The pair, who got engaged in 2019, have struggled to get their big day off the ground

“This last year has put everything into perspective and there are bigger things going on in the world.”

Earlier this year she posed in a wedding dress but warned she may have to push the wedding back to 2022.

But she laughed, referencing her black underwear that can be seen through the gown: “Note to self – never wear black underwear to a bridal fitting.”

She told OK magazine: ‘We’re going to have the baby and focus on that’

The actress is famous for playing Ruby Allen in the BBC soap

With their wedding on hold, the pair started trying for a baby instead.

She said on Loose Women: “We’ve cancelled the wedding. I said to Ben, ‘let’s start trying because it doesn’t look like the wedding is happening’.

“Then we fell pregnant and officially our wedding could go ahead but it’s too late now.”

Louisa revealed the news she’s having her first child by showing off her growing baby bump to fans on Mother’s Day.

Ben popped the question in the Maldives back in 2019 in a romantic moment – until a cleaner walked in during the proposal.
