GEMMA Collins has said she suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in lockdown.
The 39-year-old Towie star said she was "very sad" about it, but added that it gave her hope she would have children one day.
Gemma opened up about her sadness during a special appearance on Loose Women today.
She told the panel: "I did suffer a miscarriage, which was really sad, during the lockdown period."
The star, who has polycystic ovary syndrome,said she had a very heavy period that lasted for ten days.
She explained: "I rang my doctor and he said I had to go straight to the hospital."
The star added: "It was very sad. But it does make me realise that potentially there is hope for the future."
She said she still hopes to become a mum explaining she is still "holding on to that dream" that she will conceive naturally.
Gemma split from long-term boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent last month.
The star last month spoke about another miscarriage that happened in 2012, saying she gave birth on her landing.
Speaking on her podcast she said: "I actually gave birth to a child, sadly, and basically the child was four months old.
"Basically I had a miscarriage but obviously the baby was formed and it died in front of me.
"I had to go to the hospital and my mum was there. I can remember my mum being really upset, I was in shock, I was upset.
"That was really a shocking moment for me. But this is what I’m saying, I can talk about it now. Things sometimes are not meant to be."
