Giovanna Fletcher has opened up about the devastating miscarriage she suffered.

“It's amazing to hear that Meghan has spoken about it, I’d love to interview her on the podcast," the new Queen of the Castle said.

“I think it's so important that people are open about miscarriages.

"Every time someone brings this topic of conversation up it helps so many people, because it's such a lonely thing to go through and hearing other people express themselves when you can't find the words to help people understand what you're going through is so important.

“I think it's so admirable and amazing for her to share what is a really raw and upsetting thing to go through.”

Giovanna, whose husband Tom was thrilled as he got to speak to her ahead of their reunion, is now mum to her three sons Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and two year old Max.

However, back in 2012, the star suffered a tragic miscarriage at six weeks.

"I had a miscarriage before Buzz and it took me years to be able to talk about it, but once you do it's hugely comforting to know that you're not alone," she told The Sun Online.

Giovanna continued: “Miscarriage is still common and it's amazing that people don't feel like they can tell people that they are pregnant until 12 weeks because they don't know what might happen.

"When a miscarriage happens you need the people in your life to be there for you and you don't need to feel ashamed or like you've done anything wrong, you need the people in your life to be able to give you the support."

The brunette beauty reiterated that people need support systems around them as she said: "I don't feel like people should be scared of saying anything just in case, because if the just in case happens you need those people.”
