Matthew Wright and his wife are undergoing IVF treatment.
The 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' contestant and his second spouse Amelia Gatte - whom he married in 2010 - are trying to conceive a baby with the help of IVF after an ectopic pregnancy four years ago left her unable to fall pregnant naturally.
Matthew said: "It's funny because I actually didn't want children.
"But then Amelia almost died and everything changed.
"People think of IVF as a miracle that solves everything but the reality is, it doesn't. It's very hard to go through it."
The couple sought the advice of a Harley Street professional to help them start a family, but all three of their IVF pregnancies so far have ended in a miscarriage.
However, doctors are convinced that with a change of medicine, the next try will be successful.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Matthew said: "This isn't the last go but obviously if it doesn't work then we will have to start thinking about where we go from there.
"We had a friend who was still trying aged 46. She tried one more time and had healthy twins!
"A story like that just shows anything's possible."
Amelia added: "We said we'd try three times and then stop but then here we are, trying a fourth time.
"Hopefully the next will be successful and we can celebrate two things in 2014 -- Matthew maybe being King of the Jungle, and a baby!"
