    BBC star Keeley Donovan has shared the heartbreaking news that she's suffered a miscarriage.

    However, she has since revealed that doctors told her she had sadly miscarried at her 12-week scan.

    In her emotional post, Keeley wrote:*TRIGGER WARNING* baby loss.

    "I returned to work last week but you might not have seen me around for a while, the truth is I’ve been off with horrid morning sickness. Unfortunately the day before our 12 week scan I started to show signs of a miscarriage.

    "At the scan there was no heartbeat. A few days later I ended up back in hospital because of heavy blood loss. It’s been a sad and worrying time.

    "It’s awful to think that so many people go through this but I have found comfort in knowing that miscarriages aren’t uncommon. Talking to other women/friends who’ve been through a similar experience has really helped."

    She continued: "It still feels like a subject that lots of us don’t know enough about. I had no idea, for example, about how traumatic the physical side of a miscarriage can be.

    "One of the many emotions I’ve felt is shame. I can’t help wondering if this is one of the reasons it’s not more widely talked about.

    "So I’m just posting this as one more person adding to the dialogue. Maybe it will help someone in a tiny way to know they aren’t alone in their experience.

    "I also post lots of positive things about my life on here and wanted to be genuine, because sometimes life can be a bit rubbish too.

    "If you have had a miscarriage and would like advice or feel you need to speak to someone @tommys and @cradle_charity are helpful. Thank you to our friends, family and colleagues who have been so kind to us over the past few weeks."

    Keeley's post was inundated with supportive messages from her fans, friends and family.

    One fan penned: "’m so sorry to hear this Keeley. Stay strong Lovely. It’s something I also went through. If you ever need a chat I’m there too alongside your friends xx"

    Another added: "Sending all my love . Am so so sorry for your loss Keeley and it is a great loss . Take time to grieve take time to heal. It is something that will stay with you forever."

    A third person gushed: "So sorry to hear this, I miscarried with my first baby many years ago, I went on to have two healthy babies and I'm sure when the time comes you will have your second beautiful baby. Take care xx"
