The weight loss success story with a tragic twist on This Time Next Year has a beautiful happy ending after all.

Viewers saw Fiona Walker appear on Tuesday night’s show, determined to lose eight stone in one year in order to start fertility treatment to have a baby.

She revealed she had managed to shed six stone and fall pregnant naturally. But her journey ended in heartbreak when she suffered a miscarriage.

However there is a wonderful update to this story, as Fiona is now 22 weeks pregnant and expecting her baby in the summer.

Fiona told Metro.co.uk: ‘I lost a little bit more weight over the summer holidays. We filmed in May and I lost a bit more over the summer, and then it was the end of September when I fell pregnant.

‘So I didn’t lose too much more because it was the summer holidays and then I fell pregnant naturally in September.

‘They say to wait six months when you’re 35 or over before being referred for treatment again. August was six months after the miscarriage.

‘I had a fertility appointment booked for October again, and so we’d just kind of forgotten about it and getting on with life.

‘And then I fell pregnant two weeks before the fertility appointment was due.’

Fiona is determined to continue to keep fit after the baby arrives.

She said: ‘Since I fell pregnant, I don’t look like I did on the show because some of the weight’s come back on.

‘But I’m determined after the baby I’m going to get it off again.

‘It was initially about losing weight to get pregnant, but now after the show, losing weight is something I want to do again regardless of whether I wanted to get pregnant again or not.

‘I have been trying to keep up my exercises and I want to get straight back into it as soon as I can. I just think if you want it enough you find the willpower to lose the weight.

‘I got married and I didn’t lose the weight for that, because I didn’t have to. If there had been a reason that I had to I would have.

‘But I knew that I wanted to get pregnant, and that’s down to me. Nobody else could do anything about that. I had to lose the weight.

‘It was either lose the weight or don’t have a baby. Simple as that. Nobody else can do it for me. It’s a question of how much you want it really. If you want it that much, put your mind to it and you can do it.’

Fiona added that the decision to reveal her miscarriage on TV came with ‘mixed emotions’.

‘I took a bit of a positive spin out of it. We never thought we would get there naturally and that we had this really long IVF journey in front of us.

‘I really had to look at the positives. Although it was really sad and it was really difficult. We took the positive that it could happen naturally, and that’s the way we looked at it more than anything else.’

And she’s not the only one on a health kick.

‘My husband is doing really well,’ Fiona said. ‘He runs three times a week now.

‘When we filmed the show he lost two and a half stone, and he’s lost four stone now. So he’s keeping that up and I want to get back into it as well once we’ve had the baby.
