Congratulations are in order for Bradley Walsh, who has welcomed his first grandchild into the world!

Taking to social media in February this year, The Chase host's daughter Hayley announced the exciting family news that she is pregnant with her first baby.

And now the much-loved TV presenter has revealed she has since given birth to a baby boy.

Speaking in a recent interview, Bradley said: "I am a grandfather! My daughter and her husband Tom have had a baby boy, who is coming up to five months old.

"It's been tricky as during lockdown no one could get to see their grandchildren. Thank God for FaceTime - it has kept people in touch."

Bradley also joked he plans to ply his grandson with fizzy drinks and sweet treats before handing him back to Hayley.

He said: "I'm going to be a brilliant grandfather because I've got this trick. When the baby grows into a toddler, make sure you spend plenty of time with them, feeding them ice cream and Coca-Cola, and then give them back at just the right time and say to your children, 'There you are, that's what you were like.'"

Hayley is the eldest of the 60-year-old's two children. She was from his previous relationship with Debby Parker.

Bradley is also dad to son Barney, 23, with his wife Donna Derby who he stars with in the TV show Breaking Dad.

While Bradley and Barney regularly appear on TV together, Hayley has stayed out of the limelight.
