Nadia Essex is due to welcome her little one into the world next March but the dating expert has been left homeless and claims she's been turned down for a flat because of her pregnancy.

The single mum-to-be, who has decided to keep her baby father's identity a secret, previously opened up and admitted she'll be co-parenting with her little one's dad.

"My baby’s dad lives in America and he wants to be involved, so we’ll find a way to co-parent and communicate.

"I have a great support system and a very honest relationship with my family," she told Closer.

However now she's opened up about her current living arrangement and claimed that a landlord refused to rent to her because she's expecting.

The 37 year old confessed that she hadn't mentioned her pregnancy when she discussed the tenancy because they didn't ask her about it and she "never thought it would matter".

Things changed after she opened up about her mental health struggles on Instagram by revealing her GP offered her perinatal mental health support after coming off her anti-depressants during her pregnancy.

"I put the post up and that afternoon I got call from the agent who said he'd spoken to the landlord about my offer," she told the Mirror.

"He then said, 'Is it true that you are expecting?' I asked, 'Expecting what?' and he said, 'A baby'.

"I told them yes but that I didn't understand why it was relevant and he told me that the landlord had gone on my Instagram and that he wanted to decline my offer."

She went on to say that despite "offering a two year lease" and "offering to pay for the paint" so she could improve the flat, the landlord "thinks that I'm not a desirable candidate".

The Celebs Go Dating star was left heartbroken from the incident and "cried for two solid days" after feeling discriminated again and "not being able to do anything about".

The yummy mummy moved into the spare bedroom of her friend's house before discovering her pregnancy after she had to move out of her previous pad. However she plans to find her own place before her baby arrives in March 2020.
