Made In Chelsea star and Gareth were guests on the show Lorraine where they discussed their experience so far with IVF and the difficult challenges they have faced, revealing that they have lost five embryos in one year.

The couple announced last year that they were trying to have a baby via a surrogate and have documented their journey so far on social media.

Asked if they were planning to continue with IVF after several failed attempts, the couple remained optimistic and Ollie replied, “It’s our main and comprehensive goal. We are so ready for it.”

‘We have lost five embryos in the past year. We have been to Cyprus, Mexico and the US and it was difficult and very expensive. But we’re still trying and we have so much support.

Gareth added: “All the knock-backs make you know you’re ready for it.”

It comes after Ollie explained that after learning she was pregnant in November, their surrogate sadly miscarried at six weeks after their first attempt at having a baby via IVF was unsuccessful.
