Natalie Cassidy has landed her own reality show as she prepares to become a mother.
The former EastEnders actress – due to give birth to her first child in September – will be in a new fly-on-the-wall show to be screened by E4.
The station will broadcast four hour-long documentaries in the autumn with the working title Natalie Cassidy: Becoming Mum.
Natalie said: “I want this to be fun, normal and all about real life, not starry, just truthful, great fun with family and friends. This series will be about me the actress and presenter on my journey to becoming a mum.”
Cameras will follow Strictly Come Dancing contestant Natalie, 26, as she and partner Adam Cottrell spend the coming months getting ready for the birth.
Channel 4 said the series will offer ‘a humorous glimpse’ into the pair’s lives as they embark on a life-changing experience.
Acting Head of E4 Paul Mortimer said the actress – who played EastEnders’ Sonia Fowler – appealed to the station’s audience and added: “Natalie is a warm and witty young woman with a great sense of humour.”
The show is being made by Leeds-based production company Daisybeck.
