Pregnant Dani Harmer wades into the sea to film scenes for the new series The Beaker Girls


She recently revealed she’s expecting her second child.  

But Dani Harmer kept her baby bump well hidden as she filmed scenes for the new series The Beaker Girls on Thursday. 

The actress, 32, didn’t let her pregnancy hinder her acting abilities as she waded into the sea with a co-star in Clevedon, before chatting with her on-screen daughter Emma Maggie on the sea wall.

It is not known whether Dani’s pregnancy will be worked into the storyline of the series or not, but the star ensured her bump was hardly visible as she filmed scenes in a flowing red top and cropped yellow jacket.

The former child star teamed the garments with a pair of black culottes and Birkenstocks as she braved the cold water. 

She embraced her co-star in an emotional hug before they held hands while exiting the sea.
