The Traitors' Charlotte Chilton has told how the show's cast have been a massive support as she awaits the arrival of her "miracle" baby.

The reality star – who was in the second series of the hit BBC show – revealed in April that she was expecting, after previously experiencing fertility struggles. She has named pop star Conor Maynard as the father, saying it happened after they met on a night out, but he has not commented publicly on the news.

The pair are not together, but during her appearance on ITV's Loose Women Chilton said her Traitors co-stars have been an "extended family" during her pregnancy.

During Tuesday's show, the star was asked about the Traitors cast being a big support and she replied: "Yeah, they are literally like an extended family."

"I know you get all this talk when people do these shows together, but genuinely like, one in the morning crying on the phone, I've been sat at Jonny's (Holloway) with Miles (Asteri) when I really thought I couldn't do it... I really needed them," she said.

"Diane (Carson) has been a massive help as well. Just kind of telling me I can do it, making me feel like, empowered. But all of the cast, Mollie (Pearce) and Jas (Jasmine Boatswain), you know, they are like little sisters that are just cheerleaders for me.

"And yeah, I'm really lucky. The majority of the cast have been fantastic."

The TV star was previously married to wife Laura and spent years trying to conceive. When she announced her pregnancy on Instagram she said she had suffered seven miscarriages and that she'd been through fertility treatment in the past.

She said on Loose Women: "I started off not being able to get pregnant. And then after crazy diets and ridiculous obsessions, I was like, 'okay, I can get pregnant.' But then the next problem was I couldn't stay pregnant."

Chilton tried IVF but said it made her unwell and that doctors didn't recommend her trying it again. So when she did fall pregnant naturally it was a "real shock". "You know when you watch the movies and she screams? It was really like that," she said. She said her baby, who she plans to name Penelope, is a "miracle".

However, the TV star also shared that the pregnancy has not been all plain-sailing.

"It's been really difficult," she said. "I have had lots of spotting. I got put on bed rest twice. I had two holidays that I had to cancel because of that, which I'm now much better obviously. Lots of extra scans, lots of extra consulting visits.

"It has been stressful in that sense, but, you know, friends and family have just completely kept me sane."
