Gemma Collins on her heartbreaking miscarriage and motherhood dreams: 'I pray every night that everything's going to work out for me'

Gemma Collins told the Loose Women that she's determined to become a mum after having a heartbreaking miscarriage in lockdown.

Gemma, who thought her chances of conceiving were very small because she has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), explained how she initially thought she was just having a heavy period.

"It went on for 10 days between 9am and midday, I was getting through 10 super sanity towels. Then it was my sister-in-law, not to be graphic, but I had to show her. I said, 'I don't think this is normal’. I rang my doctor and he said, 'You need to go straight to the hospital'."

"It was very sad, but it does make me realise that potentially there is hope there in the future," Gemma added. "I pray every night that  everything’s going to work out for me."
