Sophie Kasaei broke down in tears while filming Geordie Shore OGs after discovering she suffers from endometriosis.

The reality star found out about her diagnosis in front of the cameras when the doctor revealed it could affect her fertility.

The NHS have stated that endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.

The condition can affect women of all ages and symptoms include period pain that prevents you from doing normal activities, pain when going to the toilet during your period and difficultly getting pregnant.

After Sophie discovered the news she broke down and admitted, "I'm sitting here with the doctor and I'm getting all this news and to be honest it's really scary.

"A woman telling me I might not be able to have kids and I might struggle... I keep thinking about everybody else, how comes everyone else is fine to have them?"
