Anita Rani has bravely spoken out about the loss she suffered with her husband Bhupi Rehal in December 2018. The Countryfile presenter admitted that lockdown finally allowed her time to reflect and grieve.

The 42-year-old has become a well-known face on the popular BBC programme alongside her co-star Matt Baker.

Anita has now spoken candidly about her miscarriage and revealed it is a “difficult” subject for her, but believes it’s important to break the taboo.

“It’s difficult to talk about, because it’s bereavement,” she explained.

“It’s a loss, and that will never change. But it’s too exhausting not living truthfully and I also thought it was too important not to use my voice.”

The small-screen star explained that not many people feel comfortable talking about the issues surrounding miscarriages despite “many women going through it”.

Anita revealed that a number of men and women have reached out to her since she first shared the tragic news.

“Lockdown has given me space to be more thoughtful,” she told The Sun.

“I will look back at this year as hopefully a moment of rebirth.”

The BBC favourite has previously opened up about her miscarriage and commented on the “shock” of it.

“Miscarriage is this taboo that exists in society and somehow, as women, we just have to get on with it,” Anita explained to You Magazine.

“When you go through it, it’s such a shock to you – you don’t know what’s happening.”

Anita and her husband Bhupi have been married for over a decade.

The TV star previously detailed how the pair met at a warehouse party in 2008.

“I’m a bit of a bore, I’m very happy to spend Friday night on my own, but I went,” Anita explained.

She continued: “It was brilliant, I felt like I’d found my people.

“I met my husband at that party, and I also met some of the best friends I’ve ever made in my life.”

Elsewhere, the Countryfile presenter recently took to Twitter and shared a sweet snap of her pet pooch claiming his “throne”.

In view of her 97,000 followers, Anita shared a snap of her dog Rafi looking very comfortable on a cushion.

She wrote: “Ready to lounge in my new golden throne.”

Fans flocked to comment on the post, as one person gushed: “Oh for goodness sake, how cute can any creature get!”

Another person penned: “What a gorgeous little doggy.”

Countryfile airs on Sunday on BBC One at 5.20pm.
