Ollie Locke has revealed to fans that the first round of IVF he and husband Gareth have had with a surrogate has not worked.
The Made In Chelsea star, 33, had revealed last month that he and Gareth were having a baby via surrogate, sharing a video of an egg being fertilised.
Ollie took to Instagram on Saturday to update fans on their journey, revealing the sad news that their first attempt had been unsuccessful.
He wrote: ‘We wanted to share an update with all our amazing supportive followers who have been with us on our surrogacy journey.
‘I’m sorry I have been quiet, sadly we found out last week our first attempt at IVF hasn’t worked and after the heartbreaking news we have come to terms with the situation and are now looking forward to getting out to go for a second attempt very soon.’
He explained: ‘Doing surrogacy and IVF is not a straight forward thing and there are a lot of ups and downs and testing times that really make you appreciate what it means to achieve the end result of having children.

‘Our heart goes out to everyone who have been through this and still going through it and hope that sharing this journey and experience will highlight how difficult and emotional the journey really is.’
Ollie promised to keep fans updated with the couple’s journey to having a child, adding: ‘The support we have had has been amazing and we will continue to keep you all a part of our journey.
‘I adore all you and all your kind messages, we are being super positive and looking forward to the next round!
