She’s gorgeous, she’s dated Hollywood stars and she has a successful career – you’d think Lisa Snowdon had it all.

But no. As she revealed in the jungle, the 44 year old presenter and model is missing out on one thing in her life – children.

During her time on I’m A Celeb, the stunning beauty heartbreakingly told fellow camp mates that she felt that she had left it too late to start a family.

But now she has revealed why she decided not to have kids earlier on in life, admitting, “I didn’t want to have a baby in an unhappy relationship.”

Speaking to The Mirror after her eviction this week, the model who is dating George Smart, said: “I didn’t happen and it’s something that I have kind of come to terms with.

“A lot of the younger ones in there they want children or they have children. I’m really lucky that I’ve got four little kids in the family.

“I did always want to be a mum when I was younger, it was something I always imagined doing and being.

“But slowly over the years it just hasn’t happened for various reasons, mostly the fact that I wasn’t in happy relationships and I just didn’t want to have a baby and not have a happy home, I didn’t want to have an unhappy pregnancy, I just didn’t.”

She added: “And now I’m 45 in January and it hasn’t happened. Rather than feel sorry for myself I feel like I’ve found George now and we are just really happy that we have each other.

“Sometimes you have to be grateful for what you’ve got than trying to keep pushing it. I feel quite content in the fact we have made that decision between us and I’m just a really rocking Aunty. That’s going to be my role.”

Lisa also admits that her stint in the jungle was tough on her because she is far more used to being alone.

“I’m quite a loner really,” she confessed. “I like to be on my own a lot even though I’m quite out going. I still like being at home and shutting the door, nights in.

“So to live with that amount of people in that confined space was a challenge in itself, you can’t go anywhere, you’ve got your hammock, you’ve got the log, you can walk to the creek, there are not that many places you can go to get away.

“That was the worst bit for me, having those moments when you are lying there by yourself and thinking about what’s going on.

“I was just thinking about Christmas and what I was going to buy people for Christmas. But I see the world in a different way now, I feel very appreciative of the simple things in life.”

Awwww, bless her!
