GIANT panda Tian Tian is expected to give birth “any day”, according to a keeper at Edinburgh Zoo.

A visitor to the Chinese bear’s enclosure was told that Tian Tian was giving off hormones that indicate she is about to have her cub.

The male member of staff said: “We think Tian Tian will give birth any day now because of a hormone she is giving off.”

The keeper also revealed that the male panda, Yang Guang, had been severely affected by the hormone.

“The hormone is making Yang Guang really restless,” said the keeper.

Edinburgh Zoo, however, insisted today that there were no fresh developments to report.
