Jools Oliver has revealed that she went through a miscarriage during lockdown.

The mum-of-five, who is married to celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, opened up to Zoe Hardman on her Made By Mammas podcast.

Since giving birth to the couple's son River in 2016, Jools, 45, told Zoe that she's had three miscarriages.

And Zoe commented that Jools was "pining for a sixth child".

Jools replied: "I really do, I really do, but I've just had three miscarriages since then [River's birth] and I'm thinking – and a recent one three weeks ago – and I'm thinking: 'No.'

"I dunno. I do want to, but I've got to mentally check that it's a good idea to do. And also physically because I am 45 as I always say, nearly 46. So it's a little bit dodgy."

The couple already have Poppy, 18, Daisy, 17, Petal, 11, Buddy, nine, and three-year-old River, together.

She added: "Jamie is still up for it, kind of… not really. I haven't got long, maybe another year and then I really will just shut that chapter off because I am very happy and I am pretty full up at the moment as it is.

"But just that little baby, it's a terrible thing to keep wanting something and you can't help it."

Discussing the miscarriages, Jools said: ‘I went to see the doctor the other day and he said: 'How are you mentally?'

"I thought about it and I went: 'Well, this is the fifth one now.' I had two before River, and they’ve been early ones, the last two have been at six-and-a-half weeks.

"So I just feel… I’m really good at going: 'Right, I’m pregnant but it won’t work so I’m just going to carry on' whilst everyone gets really into it and I have really learnt to not because I’m kind of not very positive about it."

Last month, Jools spoke about her five miscarriages in a post about her and Jamie on their 20th wedding anniversary, saying there were "five little stars in the sky".

She wrote: "20 years married but together 27 years my first true love… Yes I drive you Bonkers and you probably deserve a medal etc…

"We have created 5 wonderful children and lost our 5 little stars in the sky. Thank you for loving me the way you do…"
