She told the Loose Women panel: “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.

“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.”

Gemma added that she isn’t giving up on her fertility battle.

She explained: “I will have a baby and I do want a baby. And also, every mother will know this, I want to feel motherhood… I’ve not had the physical experience of being a full time mum. I don’t want that robbed from me in my life, that would be a travesty.”

On Gemma’s BBC podcast, she has spoken of suffering a miscarriage in 2012.

She said: “But 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.”
