"Please respect their privacy as the couple try to cope with losing their precious baby and seek the support they both need."

Courtney's last post to social media was on 11 July when she uploaded a photo of her baby bump saying she'd been sleeping more than ever while pregnant.

She announced the pregnancy at just four weeks back in May, saying she'd had to go public because others had been planning to reveal her baby news without her knowledge.

At the time she said she was "extremely overwhelmed" but happy.
