Gogglebox Australia star Isabelle Silbery has revealed she suffered a miscarriage.

The 34-year-old shared the heartbreaking news in an Instagram post on Monday.

‘I feel that it’s clearly not spoken about openly enough. It’s been a really rough time… the rollercoaster of getting my head around being a mother again and then suddenly having it taken away,’ she added.

Isabelle went on to say she was ‘working her way through it’ with support from her friends and a psychologist.

‘What’s also been challenging is simultaneously supporting myself but also [fiancé] Alex as we process our individual losses,’ she said.

‘We shared our happy news openly with our friends and family early on and we don’t regret this because it’s enabled us to be so well supported as we get through this.

‘I now understand all the amazing women who have been through this and my heart goes out to all of you… wherever you are.’

Isabelle shares a son with ex-husband Craig Silbery, whom she split from in 2017 after five years of marriage.

She met her fiancé Alex Richards in March 2020 and isolated with him throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

The pair became engaged in July that year, with the reality star announcing the happy news on Instagram.

This was followed by the couple purchasing their first property together in August.

Isabelle’s friend, Ben Norris, revealed the news on the TV Blackbox podcast.

‘Who just bought a million-dollar mansion to celebrate their engagement to a man they only met in March?’ Ben said. ‘Isabelle Silbery from Gogglebox!’ he added.

‘[She’s] one of my very good friends, and she will kill me for that. But hey, it’s a true story.’
