Lisa Riley is exploring IVF treatment in a bid to fall pregnant.

The former "Emmerdale" star has revealed she is desperate to have a family with her boyfriend Al - whom she has been dating since 2014 - and is looking into all of her options.

The "Loose Women" panellist - who has lost 12 stone - 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, but she's made a U-turn and says she no longer wants to "live in fear" of what could happen.

She told You Mag: "I've decided not to live in fear.

"I want to have IVF but I'm not going to put myself through a lot of stress if it doesn't work.

"There are a lot of reasons why I want to have a baby: some to do with the fact I've saved myself by losing weight, but also that I'm in love for the first time in my life and he would like to have a baby if we can.

"I don't just think about myself any more. If we were to have a child, that would be wonderful."

Lisa admits that she was concerned that she wouldn't be able to deliver a baby naturally because of the surgery she underwent to remove excess flesh from her body after shedding the pounds.

She said: "When I went in to have surgery to remove the loose flesh after I lost all my weight, the first thing that came into my head when I saw my surgeon was, "Can I still have kids after all the surgery?" I was worried that because my skin had been cut it would no longer stretch."
