The Celebrity Big Brother star stepped out with her husband, footballer Tom Williams, at Nikki Grahame's book launch at the Sanctum Soho Hotel in London.

The couple revealed they were expected their third child back in March, but found out they had sadly lost their unborn baby during a routine scan.

In an interview with OK magazine earlier this month, she said: "I went for my first scan - my 12 week scan - at a private clinic in Harley Street a week ago and there was no heartbeat.

"The doctor told me that the baby's heart probably stopped at nine weeks.

"We are absolutely gutted but we've just got to be grateful that we have two healthy boys."

The pregnancy was a surprise to the star, and she was spotted partying just days before she announced she was carrying the baby.

When asked if she was concerned her drinking in the early stages had something to do with her sad news, she said: "Yes, I did worry, but it was only one night and I didn't know I was pregnant."

Shortly after revealing the news, Nicola was involved in a car accident, but managed to escape unharmed.

She told her Twitter followers at the time: "I really am trying to think positive but I have the worst luck!!! Just crashed my car!!! I want to cry.

"I've cried lol and thank you no one was hurt thank god."
