His award winning comes after Jamie’s wife Jools, 46, recently revealed she may undergo IVF to have another baby after enduring five heartbreaking miscarriages.

She candidly revealed she feared she could lose her life before seeking medical help while she suffered her second miscarriage.

The model, who shares Poppy, 19, Daisy Boo, 17, Petal Blossom, 12, Buddy, ten, and River, five, with Jamie is now also urging women to talk about baby loss.

She told Life & Soul with Zoe Clark-Coates: ‘So I have thought about IVF because having researched it and spoken to some amazing people, it seems like the right option for my age.

‘But you know that’s it’s hard because also I’ve got a partner you know, I’ve got to think about him I’m not so sure he’s that keen to do it that way. So I don’t want to push anything, because I’m very lucky.

‘I presume when I get to an age when I’m in the menopause. I will think actually, ”Thank God.”

‘I will feel relieved that it’s not possible and I can just carry on with my life and you know, relax, because it’s always in the back of your head, that’s the problem.’
