TV STAR Natasha Kaplinsky is opening up about her struggle to have children with her husband on Miscarriage: Our Story on Channel 5.

This comes after the former BBC newsreader, from Sussex, revealed how she struggled to conceive and suffered multiple miscarriages that left her feeling "barren as a woman". 

Earlier this year, Natasha spoke about the “frightening” experience of her husband Justin Bower fighting coronavirus.

The couple, along with their children, have spent lockdown at their home in the Sussex countryside.

Natasha is probably best known as the winner of the first series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2004.

The Argus: Natasha Kaplinsky

Natasha was born in Brighton after her parents moved to the UK as they fled from South Africa after opposing the apartheid regime.

The family then moved to Kenya where Natasha spent her early years, before moving back to England for “various reasons”.

They chose Barcombe, and after developing an affinity for the area, Natasha chose to return to East Sussex in 2012 after her son, Arlo, turned three. 

In 2018, she suffered severe facial burns following a boating accident.
