Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes has been seriously struggling with her latest pregnancy

Chanelle Hayes opened up to Closer Magazine earlier this year about her third pregnancy.

She explained that her 16-stone frame along with her Polycystic Ovary Syndrome was causing her pregnancy to be extremely difficult, admitting she had found it "tough".

But appearing on This Morning earlier today, the 29-year-old confessed that she was finding it "vile" being pregnant second time round, and that is absolutely "miserable" at the moment.

Chanelle suffers from terrible hyperemesis, a particularly bad form of pregnancy sickness: "I've had really bad hyperemesis. I've been on a drip in hospital numerous times. It's been awful. I can't even explain how disgusting... It's been vile."

As Eamonn broached the subject of the sickness, she began to look queasy and pointed out that she had a bin on hand - highlighting just how close she was to vomiting live on the show.

Chanelle, who's been sick up to 40 times a day, said: "It's awful. I felt so sorry for my son and my partner because it was as though I was just absent from their lives."

She's been very outspoken about her difficult pregnancy, despite the fact that it can be very difficult to get pregnant if you suffer from PCOS.

Chanelle clarified on the show that she is grateful, just in case any women watching were struggling to get pregnant and found her honesty offensive.

She said: "In no way am I ungrateful, I am so, so, so grateful that I could have a baby, especially when I've got polycystic ovaries and was so overweight...

"It's quite rare to get pregnant when you're overweight and got polycystic ovaries. But it's just a miserable, miserable time and I think there's so much talk about postnatal depression, but it can also make you feel really bad when you are pregnant as well, especially if you're not happy with your body and you've been so sick."

She added: "I think, whilst I'm so grateful and I would not change it for the world and I'm so excited to meet the new little baby, I don't want to be ashamed to say I'm absolutely miserable as well."

Medical staff have kept a very close eye on her, and she has had to endure a lot more tests than normal due to her weight: "I have had so many different tests, so many regulations that have needed to be done at hospital this time, purely because of how much heavier I am than before.

"So I've had one pregnancy where I was 7 stone and one pregnancy... Well, I don't know what I weigh now, I'm scared to get on the scales, I don't want to break them and have to buy more, but it's just like one extreme to the other."

She continued: "It's just shown me really how unhealthy, regardless of how happy and comfortable I felt, how unhealthy I was before that they've had to do all these extra tests, like diabetes tests, pre-eclampsia tests.

"I've had to meet a consultant rather than just through midwives purely because of my weight."

She admitted that her weight was causing her problems "You just feel massive and huge and I felt big anyway beforehand. I feel happier at about a size 10. I can't wait to just have the baby, go on power walks, have a healthy diet back, and get to probably a size 10-ish."

The reality star absolutely ruled out having a third baby: "That won't be happening, no. Absolutely not.

"I don't think it's fair on my son that I've not been able to go to these trampoline parks and stuff with him because I've felt too heavy and not be able to do all these sporty things that he does, and then obviously with another one on the way, you don't want to be sat there unhealthy."
