She has wrapped up filming on Coronation Street and started her maternity leave.

And Catherine Tyldesley already looks like a proud mum as she shared a sweet picture with fans on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old is expecting her first child with her fitness trainer fiancé Tom Pitfield and showed off her blossoming body on Twitter.

New Year’s Eve with a bump: Catherine Tyldesley showed off her blossoming figure as she prepares to be a mother in 2015

The blonde actress – best known for playing Eva Price on the soap –  looked glowing as she placed a protective hand on her baby bump, accentuated with a tight orange vest.

The star is now on maternity leave and told fans on her Hello! blog that she was overcome with emotion as she shot her final scenes for 2014.

She wrote: ‘There were a lot of emotional scenes and extremely long days. By Friday my energy levels were completely depleted so my maternity leave couldn’t have come at a better time.

As I stepped off set after filming my final scenes. I looked across reception I could see the biggest, most beautiful bunch of flowers I’ve ever seen.

Where’s the bump? Catherine covered up her pregnancy figure as she filmed her final scenes for Coronation Street with her co-star Terence Maynard in Manchester earlier this month

‘Intrigued I headed over and opened the card – “I am so proud of you. Now please come home and be a mummy.” They were from my Tom. I was an emotional wreck for a good hour. Completely bursting into tears in the middle of ITV!’

Catherine managed to keep her bump under wraps as she shot her last sequences on the famous Corrie cobbles earlier this month.

And, despite the adverse weather conditions, the actress looked as chic as ever as she filmed scenes in her stylish cover-up in a monochrome check and stripe pattern.

She accessorised her look with a handy large purple tote bag, worn on her elbow to help conceal her pregnancy figure.

The mother-to-be wore her tresses down in a poker straight, glossy style, clearly unaffected by the precipitation, looking as glamorous as ever.

Terence, who plays the role of Tony Stewart on ITV’s serial drama, linked arms with Catherine as they acted out a scene while huddled under a large umbrella.

The two were seen arriving at a luxury hotel on the set, and were then greeted by their co-star Bruno Langley, who plays Todd Grimshaw on the soap.

Earlier in the day, Catherine had tweeted a picture of herself getting ready to eat a load of treats on the Corrie set.

Clutching a tray of mini yule logs, she wrote alongside the snap: ‘Corrie canteen have gone all festive on us. Spoilt much. Jealous @TP_PTfitness. ‘
