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.

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."
