Former I'm A Celebrity star Sam Quek has announced she's pregnant.
The lovely news comes 11 months after Sam suffered a tragic miscarriage.

Sharing a picture of she and Tom cradling her baby bump to Instagram, she wrote, 'I am delighted to (finally) announce that I am 6 months pregnant.
'After a devastating miscarriage earlier this year, I kept the news very private. However I’m now in a place where I can talk about what happened in the hope my experience can help others. Xxxx.'
After a year of trying, Sam fell pregnant at the start of 2020, but just five weeks later suffered a devastating miscarriage.
Describing the heartbreaking moment, she told OK! magazine, "I didn’t want to speak to anyone. I had guilt and shame that it was my fault.

"I was looking back at everything I did during pregnancy and replaying every single minute. I put it all on me and my body. But I never said that to Tom at the time."
Three months after losing their baby, they had a huge row - which ended with them agreeing to try again, and now they're expecting their child in February.
Sam and Tom have bee together since 2013, after meeting at a bar in Liverpool. They married in 2018 at Chester Racecourse, even though Sam originally didn't think marriage was for her before meeting Tom.
She said: "I didn't really believe in dream weddings and the idea of the one until I met Tom. I feel complete and warm inside."
And Tom added that he knew Sam was the one for him very soon into their relationship.
He explained, "From six months in I knew I was going to marry Sam, after that it was just convincing her!"
