MARRIED At First Sight star Jess Potter has revealed she has suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage.
The dental hygienist, 31, has been open about her journey to get pregnant via IVF (In vitro fertilisation) with boyfriend TJ O'Reilly.
Earlier this week, Jess shared a picture of her baby scan as she announced that she was two weeks and four days pregnant.
But on Thursday morning, the tearful star took to social media to update fans on her devastating loss.
Filming a video from inside her car, she sobbed: "I'm sitting outside work…so yesterday I started bleeding a little bit and this morning I started passing some clots and stuff.
"I'm having a miscarriage which is f****** s***."

In floods of tears, she continued: "I'm sitting outside work, just trying to put on a brave face because I've got to speak to patients all day and it's really s***.
"I haven't slept and I'm in a bit of pain and obviously I'm having a miscarriage, so it's f****** s***.
"But it is what it is, there is not much you can do.
"So I've just got to wait a couple of months before we can have another round I guess.

She captioned the video: "I wasn't sure if i was going to post this or not, and ignore my UGLY crying face.
"But i said i was sharing my journey and this is the harsh but true reality of IVF and infertility. Nothing is certain. Now time to heal. Mentally and physically."
Earlier this week, Jess was thrilled to share her happy baby news with fans.
She posted a picture of her and TJ beaming alongside a snap of their baby scan and wrote: "IVF TRANSFER COMPLETE!
"Our perfect 4AA (highest grade) embryo has been implanted and we are technically 2 weeks and 4 days pregnant…so now just praying that it sticks as there is a high chance it won't…but staying positive
"The procedure was completely pain free, was like a smear test, in and out in 5 minutes.
"I'm now taking progesterone 3x per day to prevent miscarriage and keep the womb lining thick..so fingers crossed."
Jess has been inundated with messages of support from her followers.
One wrote: "I am so sorry. This is heartbreaking. Give yourself some time off to process it. Definitely don’t feel obliged to go in work. Just keep remembering you are a strong and positive woman and you can do this."
Another posted: "My heart breaks for you. Sending you lots of love."
A third added: "Oh darling. You shouldn't be going to work darling. I'm so sorry. Oh Jess. It's heart breaking. Sending you so much love."
Jess shot to fame on the last series of MAFS UK.
