Danniella Westbrook has given her first interview since the tragic announcement that she had suffered a miscarriage and revealed that she and fiancé Tom Richards were helping each other through their grief.

The former ‘EastEnders’ star announced her pregnancy earlier this year after dating Tom for just 16 months, but took to Twitter last week to reveal that she had lost the baby.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Danniella said:“Tom’s a very positive person – but I felt I’d let him down.”

However, the couple remain undeterred by the tragedy, and have said they remain hopeful that they will have a child together in the future.

She added: “I’m heartbroken – but we’ll get there no matter what.

“We'll start trying for a baby again straight away – as soon as they say to me: 'You're okay'.”

After splitting with her husband of 12 years in January, Danniella made the headlines when she revealed she had bagged herself a younger man, 16 years her junior to be exact.

It was later reported that after a whirlwind romance, Tom had proposed to the star while they enjoyed a romantic holiday together.
