Myleene Klass turned down an offer to make a documentary about miscarriage three times before finally accepting it.

The former Hear'Say singer and TV personality, who has two daughters from her first marriage, suffered four miscarriages before having son Apollo with her fiance Simon Motson in August 2019.

She had reservations about making the documentary, Myleene: Miscarriage & Me, when she was first approached but she realised it could help break the taboo surrounding pregnancy loss.

"It's very, very exposing. It wasn't an easy decision. But I made it because it wasn't an easy decision. I think I needed to make it, in a way. This is a documentary that I would have wanted, that I would have needed at the time," she explained, reports The Mirror. "I said 'no' about three times but me and my manager both had four miscarriages over the years and we sat down and said, 'This is the film we need to watch; this is what needs to be said.'"

The radio DJ, who revealed her miscarriages in an Instagram post last October, admitted during the documentary that her ordeal "nearly broke" her and she was left so traumatised by her loss that she couldn't discuss it.

"I couldn't talk about it for a year, I couldn't even say the word. It is one word, but it is grief, it is trauma, it is sadness, it is fear. There must be a reason people can't say it," she confessed.

She admitted having a child after the miscarriages doesn't stop her from thinking about her losses, adding, "It looks all shiny on the outside but it was hell to get here. Having a baby didn't erase the pain from what happened, or stop me thinking about the ones I lost... Yeah, I mean I have had my three children... and I am a mum to seven."

Myleene: Miscarriage & Me airs on W on 14 October.
