Myleene Klass is "still just mum" to her kids despite being crowned the first jungle legend on 'I'm a Celebrity... South Africa'.
The 45-year-old singer – who has daughters, Ava and Hero with ex-husband Graham Quinn as well as Apollo with partner Simon Motson – fought off competition from other former campmates like Diversity's Jordan Banjo, former 'Countdown' star Carol Vorderman and tennis player Fatima Whitbread to win the survival show's spin-off series earlier this year and was crowned the first ever Jungle Legend but admitted that she is not quite "recognised" for her title at home.
Speaking on ITV's 'Lorraine', she told stand-in host Christine Lampard: "I'd like to say that they recognise me as the Legend in the house but I am still just mum who knows where all the socks are and delivers the laundry just like the fairies!"
Meanwhile, the former Hear'Say singer – who first appeared on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' in 2006 alongside Busted's Matt Willis and former 'Neighbours' star Jason Donovan – was speaking out against the "taboo" of miscarriage as she works alongside research group Tommy's to raise awareness of women who lose a baby after suffering four herself.
She said: "Miscarriage is a taboo. It's the final taboo in women's healthcare. For centuries, we've been taught to keep it quiet because nobody wants to talk about that subject. As women, we're expected just to make everyone else feel better. But the language around miscarriage is all just negative and women's healthcare has failed miscarriage.
"Everything is just shrouded in shame and it affects the entire family. There are children who were expecting a brother or a sister and a partner who feels helpless.
You might think your partner is really healthy, so you might think it's you. It could be that your partner is riding his bike too much or driving a lorry or drinking too much alcohol... There are also paternal factors involved and that's why it's so important that we use all the information that is available to us. I would love to see data collection."
