In an interview in March, Jorgie revealed that she had no idea she’d lost her quadruplets because her body was ‘still being pregnant’ after enduring a missed miscarriage.

The actress explained she opted for surgical removal while her fiancé Ollie discussed feeling ‘helpless’ throughout the ordeal, as the couple appeared together on Loose Women.

Jorgie first recalled learning about the pregnancy, telling the Loose Women panel: ‘I was excited that we got pregnant because that’s what we wanted. We went for an early scan because we’ve got twins in our family – on both sides.

‘The doctor said we can see three sacks – we had no idea what that meant. They said “we’re gonna rush you into a hospital appointment”.  

‘With that one we were told there were four sacks. We were still not the wiser, until she said “quadruplets.”

Ollie, who she’s been dating since 2020, added: ‘I fell over!’ while Jorgie admitted she panicked: ‘My body is too small!’  

She continued: ‘So we were just shocked. And throughout the pregnancy it was not really enjoyable – my hormones were just…

‘When you are pregnant you wanna tell some people, and you don’t tell many people early on. I’m not sure why. But, I don’t like to keep a secret. I like to tell everyone what’s going on in my life.

‘Having the hormones times four was just really stressful. I was in work with costumes. Within three or four weeks my body started to change dramatically and costumes wouldn’t fit.   

‘Before we found out it was quadruplets I thought “this is insane what pregnant women go through”.’ 

What is a missed miscarriage?

A missed miscarriage, also known as a missed abortion or a silent miscarriage, occurs when a foetus dies, but the body does not recognise the pregnancy loss or expel the pregnancy tissue.

As a result, the placenta may still continue to release hormones, so the woman may continue to experience signs of pregnancy.

It’s usually diagnosed during a routine checkup, where the doctor will fail to detect a heartbeat. A subsequent ultrasound will show an underdeveloped foetus.

Turning to her devastating miscarriage, Jorgie recalled: ‘We were going for scans regularly because we were being looked after.

‘And it was during our fifth or sixth scan, they said “you’ve had a miscarriage, they’ve gone.” I was ready for girl gang.

Asked if there were any signs she’d miscarried, she explained: ‘No, that was another thing. It was a missed miscarriage, so my body was still being pregnant and doing the symptoms of pregnancy.

‘The next bit is really heartbreaking, the question of how they’re gonna go. The hospital said… there are options where… how do we get rid of this?

‘So we went through the route of surgery so I could be knocked out. I didn’t wanna see and hear things…

‘They’ve never really done this surgery before so they didn’t know what the outcome could be. They said there could be a lot of blood loss.’

Ollie added: ‘It was kind of just thrown on just that it was a miscarriage. As a man it was really helpless and scary.

Thankfully the couple have come out even stronger, with Georgie admitting: ‘We do talk a lot. We are really good the fact that we communicate a lot.’

Ollie explained: ‘I cried straight away, while you were really tough and strong. Then a few days later you had a meltdown and I had to be strong.’   

Amid the couple’s heartache, Jorgie shared the happy news that Ollie had popped the question three weeks before Christmas. 

The actress, best known for her role as Theresa McQueen in the Channel 4 soap, got engaged to Ollie while staying at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perth and Kinross. 

The former Dancing On Ice star and her fiancé have been dating since 2020 and went Instagram official in October of that year.
