Sophie Ellis-Bextor is expecting her fourth child with her husband, The Feeling band member Richard Jones.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor has confirmed she is expecting her fourth child. The 36-year-old singer announced the news on Twitter on Wednesday (20th May). Rumours about the singer's pregnancy began earlier this week when she appeared at the Lorraine's High Street Fashion Awards. Although her dress was deliberately baggy, Bextor's baby bump was still evident for all to see.

The bands are announced to headline in this first announcement.
The first wave of artists have now been announced for the 2015 Gibraltar Music Festival, which is set to take place at the British Overseas Territory in September. Leading this year's particularly exciting line-up are headliners Kings Of Leon and Duran Duran.
This year's bill is set to be the biggest yet for the family-friendly Gibraltar Music Festival, with Kings Of Leon and Duran Duran being joined by more stellar names including British chart sensation Tom Odell, up and coming singer-songwriter Rae Morris, Brit nominated power pop band The Feeling and four-piece Lawson.

When The Feeling released their debut record in 2006, they fell just short of the summit of the album chart, but to give a flavour of the musical landscape at the time, chart-toppers that year included Keane, Snow Patrol and Embrace. Seven years on and the quintet are now preparing the release of their fourth album, which will be supported by an eleven-date UK tour beginning October 21st 2013.
From the beginning of opening track 'Blue Murder', it is very clear that The Feeling's sound has not evolved from the style that brought them commercial success. Mid-tempo and with a soaring chorus, the title track is a formulaic rock ballad comfortable on mainstream radio, but it fails to genuinely rouse. 'Anchor' follows very much the same pattern with Dan Gillespie-Sells providing what was likely intended to be a passionate vocal delivery, but in truth is more akin to a man in desperate need of a laxative. Despite some clumsy lyrics, 'Rescue' does provide a small uplift by utilising a simple hook, while 'Fall Like Rain' has a mesmeric quality that the band would do well to develop. However, 'A Lost Home' is tripe that you could imagine the likes of Westlife releasing - perhaps it's one for their scrapbook should a reunion ever surface.
If the first half of the record doesn't give much reason for optimism, the latter end also disappoints when 'The Gloves Are Off' appears. It's another predictable, by-numbers ballad, that tries desperately too hard to be emotive - you could be forgiven for giving up on 'Boy Cried Wolf' at this point. It is, however, at this time that things improve. By stripping back their sound, 'You'll See' provides a much better setting for Gillepie-Sells' fragile voice and it all connects nicely. Unfortunately, they fail to resist the temptation to throw the wall of sound in toward the track's climax, but it's still a vast improvement on many of the predecessors. Finale 'I Just Do' also leaves a good impression, thankfully so considering it clocks in at nearly nine minutes, with the decision to drizzle a touch of blues proving key. It's a positive note on which to end an album which all too often fails to inspire, but at least there are a few moments to get in touch with The Feeling.

The Feeling, despite having 'only' been in the public conscious for the past five years, have actually been together for over fifteen. Pretty impressive, seeing as most have self-combusted by the time they reach even half this number. As they prepare to release their first Singles collection album, I caught up with the quintet (and lead singer Dan's dog Teddy) at their studio to discuss their career so far, aspirations of playing in outer space and the effects of filling up the trophy cabinet.

As pop groups go, the general trend is that they get better and progress as they develop a fan base and grow into their niche. So how is it that you listen to 'Together We Are Made' and think, I'm sure people used to rate this band?!'
