This Morning's Sharon Marshall says she had a breakdown on live TV after miscarriage and was comforted by Amanda Holden

THIS Morning's Sharon Marshall revealed she had a "massive breakdown" live on This Morning after suffering a miscarriage.

The soap correspondent and screenwriter, 49, was comforted by Amanda Holden and Gok Wan after her emotions were triggered by a segment on babies.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Sharon said: "There was one day, just after I'd had a miscarriage, and there was an item on the show about the most beautiful babies in Britain.

"I had a massive breakdown and confided in Amanda Holden and Gok Wan who were hosting that day.

"They were so lovely and Amanda told me to go and get counselling, which I did. I got the loveliest message from her when I got pregnant."

Sharon also revealed Alison Hammond offered to be a surrogate for her.

She described the presenter as "the most beautiful soul" for making the selfless offer.

The road to becoming a mum with 'miracle' daughter Betsey, two, was tough for Sharon.

She suffered two miscarriages across her seven rounds of IVF and six months into her pregnancy she woke up in the night bleeding.

Thankfully, medics were able to control the bleed and Sharon carried her baby full-term before giving birth to a healthy little girl named Betsey.

But her traumatic IVF struggle left her fearing she would "jinx" her pregnancy at any moment.

She previously told The Sun: "Before she was born I was convinced something was going to go wrong.

"Until Betsey was actually put in my arms and I heard her let out the most almighty yell, I always felt like someone was going to say it's all going to be taken away from me.

"I'd never allowed myself to go and buy something for the baby before I'd given birth.

"I wouldn't even let myself look at the baby clothes in a shop. I was terrified to jinx it."
