Just a few weeks ago, Chanelle gave fans insight into the details of her miscarriage as she hosted a question and answer session with fans.
The baby news came 11 months after she became engaged to her partner, known only as Rich.
After announcing her heartache, she was asked by a fan: ‘Do you want to get pregnant straight away or will wait?’
Chanelle responded: ‘I don’t think it’s the best way to deal with things and everyone is different but the only thing that gave me hope was to try and give me something to focus on so we are going to try again straight away yes but a lot of women let themselves heal first. There is no right or wrong x’.

‘I put off announcing it but now I feel better by speaking to others and hearing other people’s stories. It has given me hope and helped me process it all actually. It’s so easy to hide yourself away and get depressed. Definitely helps to talk.’
Chanelle was later asked: ‘Do you feel let down by NHS considering you’d gone in so many times leading up? Sending love.’
She responded: ‘No I don’t. They were amazing and gave me a scan etc which shown a strong heartbeat and no problems. The heartbeat they think stopped a few days after that scan so would have been when my bleeding became heavier so unless I went everyday for a scan to check the heartbeat…
‘I’m so overwhelmed’: She shared a heartwarming message thanking fans for their support during the difficult time
‘I would not have known it had stopped. Some people carry on into pregnancy for weeks not known that their baby’s heartbeat has stopped. It’s awful but there’s nothing you can do.’
The TV star rose to prominence following an appearance on Ex On The Beach, when she appeared as the former flame of Charlotte Crosby’s ex Joshua Ritchie.
The star also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2016 opposite stars including Gemma Collins, Scotty T, Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell.
