Danniella Westbrook has opened up about her devastating miscarriage, revealing it is the second she has suffered in as many years.

Speaking to The Sun, Danniella said she also suffered a miscarriage in summer 2016, when she was with her then boyfriend George Arnold. "I got to three month mark with that one and this time I got to seven weeks," she said. "So it's been an awful time and it caused so much pressure for me and Alan really. We were already under pressure over getting a new place and it caused a lot of upset."

Danniella continued: "I was so looking forward to having baby, I’m 43, he's 35, I thought 'there's no way I'm going to get pregnant again'. And I did and I was really happy about it."

However the 43-year-old said she won't try for any more children, admitting she couldn't "take the heartbreak" again. Danniella said she is happy to be single for a while following her split from her fiancé Alan this week.

"Me and Alan are not together at the minute, we have had an argument, we're having a tough time of it at the minute. He's in Benidorm, I need some time to myself right now and he's taking it very badly," she explained. "I need to rest, I might go away for a couple of weeks and just relax and sleep and eat. At the moment I'm happy on my own. We rushed into everything too quick."
