Big Brother presenter Davina McCall has given birth to a baby son at her home in Surrey, her publicist has confirmed.

The boy, named Chester, weighed 10lb 2oz. McCall and her husband Matthew Robertson are said to be "delighted".

McCall and Robertson, who married in 2000, have two daughters: Holly, aged four, and two-year-old Tilly.

The TV presenter's latest pregnancy was witnessed by millions of viewers during this summer's edition of the Channel 4 reality show.

"Davina had a natural home birth just as she did with Holly and Tilly," said McCall's spokeswoman.

"There were no complications and everything went smoothly. Mother and baby are doing well."

All three of McCall's children were delivered by midwife Pam Wild.

McCall will be back on TV in January to host Celebrity Big Brother. Her BBC One chat show was dropped earlier this year following disappointing ratings.
