British model-turned-reality TV star Nicola McLean has suffered a miscarriage just weeks after announcing her pregnancy.
The former glamour model and Celebrity Big Brother housemate was left distraught after she was given the heartbreaking news during a routine visit to her doctor.
She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I went for my first scan - my 12-week scan - at a private clinic in (London's) Harley Street a week ago and there was no heartbeat. The doctor told me that the baby's heart probably stopped at nine weeks."
MCLean, who revealed her pregnancy in March (12), has two sons, Rocky and Striker, with husband Tom Williams.
