She posted online: “At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage which left me heartbroken. 

“I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I’ve also felt like a bag of nerves. 

“Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can look like everything is only ever going well. 

“I found it a real comfort to hear from people who had also experienced loss so I hope that in some very small way sharing this might help others too.”

She and Mr Johnson, 57, celebrated the first birthday of their child Wilfred at the end of April. 

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
