Giovanna Fletcher has revealed she suffered a miscarriage when she was six weeks pregnant in 2012.

Giovanna shares Buzz, six, Buddy, four and Max, two, with her husband, McFly's Tom Fletcher. The miscarriage happened before Buzz was born.

In her first interview since being crowned the first ever Queen of the Castle, Giovanna was motivated to reveal her experience after Meghan Markle revealed she also experienced a miscarriage in an article she wrote for The New York Times.

Speaking to The Sun, Giovanna said: "It's amazing to hear that Meghan has spoken about it, I'd love to interview her on the podcast.

"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 explained that it took her years to be able to speak about her own experience.

She said: "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.

"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.
