Lisa Riley wants to fall pregnant.

The "Loose Women" panellist - who has lost 12 stone in weight and bagged herself a new man - is hoping that she'll be able to fall for a baby naturally this year, but is open to the idea of trying IVF because she's desperate to have a family of her own.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "I'm 42 in July. If [pregnancy] happens it will be sent from my mum and I believe that completely.

"Possibly I'd have IVF, yes. But several very dear friends spent thousands and thousands of pounds on IVF and it didn't work. The second they took the foot off the gas, they got pregnant naturally.

"It is a combination of my weight loss, a healthier lifestyle and finding the right person that has changed my mindset ... I've got to start living for myself now."

The former "Emmerdale" actress put off having children when her mother Cath died from cancer in 2012 because she was worried she'd pass the genes on to them.

Cath's tragic death was a huge blow to Lisa and it's still something she's struggling to come to terms with as she paid an emotional tribute to her mum earlier this year.

She wrote online: "My life emptied when she fell asleep five years ago today so I ask today to spare a small thought for everyone close to you who have lost loved ones too early in their precious lives. I share today with the ones I love on earth and always live life to the fullest as you never know when it's your last. Love you, Mum. May your legacy always live on in me."
