"I’m not going to live my life by some man I meet."
Love Island's Amy Hart has explained her reasons for wanting to freeze her eggs.
The former contestant said today that she wanted to freeze her eggs later this year for fear that she would experience the menopause earlier.
Both Amy's mother and her grandmother both went through the menopause when they were in their 40s, leading to her concern that would also experience fertility issues in later life.
She said that although freezing her eggs wouldn't necessarily mean that she would be able to have a baby, she would opt for a sperm donor if the time came.
"I’m not going to live my life by some man I meet," she said on today's Loose Women.
"I did always think, 'I can do whatever I want. My 20s are for me, my 30s are for having kids, lovely.' But then you realise, that’s not actually my decision, it’s my body’s decision.
"I would love to meet someone, get married, have kids naturally. That’s my dream idea. But if that doesn’t happen, I’ve got my insurance policy, which isn’t even an insurance policy because it might not even work."
