Lauren Goodger has opened up for the first time about a devastating miscarriage she suffered in 2013.

The 30-year-old was making an appearance on Channel 5 programme, In Therapy, when she spoke about the heartbreaking experience.

She revealed it happened when she was dating her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean and was also taking part on Dancing On Ice.

Lauren said:

I was on a TV show that was quite intense. I had to try and perform when I was quite far gone. It didn't last.

She told the therapist she didn't give herself much time to grieve her loss, adding:

I'm the type of person who, when something happens, I move on. That's how I am. It's not something I addressed.

The former The Only Way is Essex revealed in an interview with OK! magazine back in 2011 that she made the decision to have an abortion after falling pregnant with Mark Wright's baby when she was aged 20.

She told the publication:

I've been pregnant before with his baby but I chose not to have it. I was only 20. No one knows except my close family.

I was still living with my mum, our relationship was so volatile and we weren't ready for a baby.

I'd be left in the flat and he'd go off with other girls and we said, "Let's wait till we're more settled".

She is now dating convicted criminal Joey Morrison and she has recently revealed she hopes to become a mother this year.

We wish her all the best!
