Speaking on Loose Women on Thursday, Gemma Collins heartbreakingly opened up about suffering a miscarriage during the lockdown period.

The 39-year-old TOWIE star was on the ITV show to discuss her polycystic ovary syndrome and said the devastating miscarriage left her "very sad”.

However, Gemma added that it gave her hope that she will have children one day.

Gemma said: “It was really difficult for me in isolation because, as you know, with my condition of PCOS, it’s not easy to fall pregnant and I did suffer a miscarriage which was really sad during the lockdown period.”

She added: “I have suffered with it for the last 10 years. I started to gain weight when I was 28, my periods were all over the place. I’ve suffered miscarriages.

“I did go through a very sad miscarriage in lockdown. Due to PCOS I just thought that I was having an unusually heavy period. I actually left it 10 days.

"I can remember thinking the month before, ‘Ooh, my boobs seem really perky!’ It’s been no secret recently that I’ve found my boobs so heavy in my life, I’m turning 40 this year, I will not be taking them into the next decade with me.

"So, I thought, ‘Oh, maybe I won’t have the operation, I’ve been working out, maybe they’re lifting up a bit.’ Then 3 or 4 days into a heavy period really realising it’s not like a usual period… but thinking there’s been a lot going on lately, maybe my body’s been a bit stressed.

“It went on for 10 days between 9am and midday, I was getting through 10 super sanity towels. Then it was my sister-in-law, not to be graphic, but I had to show her. I said, ‘I don’t think this is normal’.

"I rang my doctor and he said, ‘You need to go straight to the hospital’. It was very sad. But it does make me realise that, potentially there is hope there for me for the future.”

Gemma continued: “I went and saw a top specialist. I have had myself checked and he has actually told me – this is why I went on a massive weight loss journey this year. I’ve been doing it slowly, it’s not been a massive fast, rapid thing, I want it to stay off this time – he said to me, ‘You’ve got no cysts on your ovaries anymore, that’s cleared up. So, we’re winning.

"You do suffer from the syndrome so you do get the symptoms that go with it. But your cervix and everything is perfect for when you’re ready. However, you need to get your weight down, you need to get at least another two stone off.’

"And when it comes to it they might be able to give me something called Clomid which could potentially speed the process up. So hopefully George Clooney will be available around that time.”

Gemma confessed: “I pray every night that everything’s going to work out for me. I’ve been quite lucky with my career but my personal life is heart-breaking. Having the miscarriage with someone you love very much was very heart-breaking.”
