| Updated:

This Time Next Year viewers were saddened after star of the show Fiona Walker suffered a miscarriage, however, she has now shared the happy news that she is pregnant again.

Fiona went on to the show pledging to lose eight stone and fulfill her hope of having a baby.

The show, hosted by Davina McCall, sees people make their dreams come true in 12 months.

During her big reveal, which was filmed last year, Fiona said she had managed to lose an impressive eight stone but that she sadly suffered a miscarriage along the way.

Fiona told Davina on the show, which aired on 5 February: “I’ve still got two and a half stone that I want to lose. My BMI is not quite where it needs to be but there’s a little bit of a twist to that story.”

She continued: “I’ve got polycystic ovaries so that was the whole weight loss to qualify for the fertility treatment.

“But a few months ago I actually fell pregnant naturally. Unfortunately I lost the baby, had a miscarriage. I didn’t know I was ovulating but the weight loss has kickstarted my body, and it did it naturally.”
