She announced she is pregnant with her first baby in May.

And Rachel Riley was still powering on through a hectic work schedule as she left the Countdown studios on Monday.

The mother-to-be, 33, smiled as she headed home after filming a Celebrity edition of Countdown at the television studio in Greater Manchester.

She bundled up against the chilly autumn weather in a bright red jumper and a heavily padded black winter coat.

The maths whiz carried her belongings in two bags with both a silver backpack and a colourful tote slung over her shoulder. 

She finished the look with black jeans and dark suede boots with a stylish wedge.

Rachel pinned a poppy on the right lapel of her coat in support of those affected by war - they are usually worn after October 31 in the eleven-day run up to Armistice Day on November 11.

She was seen back at work after spending the weekend at the Baby Show in Olympia, London, where she carried the same colourful tote. 

Rachel is just a few weeks away from welcoming her first child with her Strictly professional husband Pasha, 39, in December.
