TV presenter Ben Fogle and his wife 'devastated' by miscarriage

TV presenter Ben Fogle and his wife have been left "devastated" after she had a miscarriage.

The couple, who have two young children, lost the baby this week.

Their spokeswoman said: "Tragically Marina and Ben Fogle have lost their precious baby at 32 weeks gestation. Marina is still in hospital. They are obviously devastated and would appreciate their privacy at this terrible time. They thank you for your understanding."

The couple previously had a miscarriage before their eldest child, Ludo, was born.

The TV adventurer first found fame when he appeared on the reality show Castaway in 2000 when he was marooned on a Scottish island for a year.

As well as TV presenting, his expeditions have included rowing across the Atlantic and racing to the South Pole with Olympic rowing gold medallist James Cracknell.
