Jacqueline Jossa has revealed her periods have become even more painful following the birth of her children.
The former EastEnders actress and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner is set to open up about her excruciating periods in an upcoming ITV documentary, aimed to get the nation talking about menstruation.
In a preview clip shared exclusively with Metro.co.uk, Jacqueline explains how hers have changed dramatically after becoming a mum.
‘I barely used to notice my period,’ she admits. ‘But since having kids they have become unbearable.
‘I wouldn’t talk about my periods unless they have become a hindrance to my life.’
Jacqueline shares two children, daughters Mia and Ella, with her husband Dan Osbourne, and her periods have become so debilitating she has to bend over.
In a short clip of the show, Jacqueline is seen driving on a countryside lane as she tells viewers about her experience with her time of the month.
Speaking to the camera, she says: ‘It’s embarrassing being somewhere in cramping up and having to physically bend over or pull up in a street because you’re having really bad tummy cramps.’
Toward the end of the video, the TV personality is seen screwing her face up in pain as she recalls her cramps.
Jacqueline joins a host of female celebrities opening up about their personal health stories for the new ITVBe series, Celebrity Health Stories.
Olympic gold medallist Nicola Adams, who recently welcomed her first child with girlfriend Ella Baig, will share her highly personal IVF story.
The one-hour film will follow Nicola and Ella throughout their IVF journey, from their very first scans through to the birth of their son, while also discussing the prejudice faced by some same-sex couples wanting to conceive and the issues around being a mixed-race couple undergoing treatment.
Actress and original member of pop group S Club 7 Hannah Spearritt is also taking part in the series and will investigate breast implant illness after she suffered from the condition following breast augmentation surgery in 2013.
Alongside her partner Adam, Hannah will meet other women who share her experience and attempt to change how breast implant illness is treated in the UK.
Elsewhere, Housewives Of Cheshire star Tanya Bardsley will speak candidly about her experience of living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) after she was diagnosed with the condition six weeks before her 40th birthday.
Jacqueline Jossa: Me & Periods airs on ITVBe and ITV Hub on Thursday September 29.
