Queen of ‘boho chic’ Savannah Miller, who has three children with her ex-husband, has revealed that she’s embarked on gruelling fertility treatment in an effort to conceive a baby with her fiancé.
The sister of Hollywood star Sienna Miller used Mothering Sunday to inform friends that she’s undergoing IVF.
‘We recently made the very brave leap of trying for a baby because, for various reasons, including me being considered geriatric at the ripe old age of 43, it’s the only way it’s ever going to happen,’ Savannah says.

The fashion designer, known for her vintage-inspired bridal gowns, announced her engagement to James Whewell, heir to the 800-acre Wyresdale Park Estate in Lancaster, last Christmas.
She says the treatment has so far proved unsuccessful. ‘We got all the way to the end without a positive pregnancy test.
‘I feel like an absolute fraud with three magnificent children already to even dare to feel sadness. Having witnessed first-hand the pain and enormous sacrifices many beautiful women have to go to fulfil this most basic human desire, I am deeply humbled to have been blessed three times over.’

Whewell, who doesn’t have any children of his own, runs a wedding business from his family seat, promoting trendy eco-weddings where guests stay in yurts.
Art dealer’s daughter Savannah is the mother of Moses, 16, Lyra, 13, and Bali, nine, with Nick Skinner, a bushcraft teacher from Devon.
She started going out with 41-year-old Whewell in the summer of 2020 following the collapse of her 15-year marriage to Skinner, 47.
Petrolhead Jeremy Clarkson’s battle with neighbours to his farm is moving up a gear.
He has applied to extend the car park at Diddly Squat in Oxfordshire from ten to 70 spaces, and build a storage compound.
However, objections have been pouring in, with some locals claiming the work has already started. One alleges: ‘A considerable amount of building work has, and is, being carried out without permission.’
Another objects that Diddly Squat created traffic ‘never envisaged of the type and scale that a farm shop would be expected to generate’.
Body Coach Joe has let himself go!
Known for his sculpted abs, glowing skin, flowing locks and boundless energy, Joe Wicks has let himself go.
The ‘nation’s PE teacher’, who encouraged us all to follow his online workouts during lockdown, has shared this shocking new photograph, revealing his pot belly and flabby ‘bingo wings’.
‘I’ve been eating chocolate cakes and biscuits every day, three bacon sandwiches for breakfast, hash browns and beans,’ admits Wicks, 36, who was awarded an MBE for his pandemic efforts.

‘It’s not very good when I’m the Body Coach, is it?’
When I saw Wicks earlier this month, he told me: ‘I have a lot of big public fitness events coming up soon.’
Looks like he may need them!
River Cafe’s Lady Rogers, 73, busts her hip in skiing prang
River Cafe co-founder Ruth Rogers lost her husband, the celebrated architect Richard Rogers, who died before Christmas aged 88.
Now, she’s been seriously injured while on a skiing holiday in the French Alps.
‘I was getting off a chair lift in Courchevel when someone bumped into me,’ Lady Rogers tells me. ‘I broke my hip.’ The West London restaurateur, 73, decided to have her hip replaced rather than repaired. Yet she still managed to record a new edition of her podcast featuring U.S. politician Nancy Pelosi.
She adds: ‘I hope to be back in the kitchen in two weeks’ time.’
Rosie: It takes hard work (and no pies) to look like this
Keeping in shape is no piece of cake for top model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
‘I have always had a liking for pies, but you have to ration things like that,’ admits the 34-year-old, who grew up on a farm near Tavistock, Devon.
‘I’ve always had a great appetite — probably all that running around outdoors started that. Working out regularly is a necessary evil.’

Rosie, who is engaged to Hollywood hardman Jason Statham, 54, gave birth to their second child last month. She adds: ‘Make no mistake, a lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes. To keep in shape for modelling work, you cannot just sit around putting on make-up.
‘You have to exercise and take note of what you are eating.
‘You have to work at being a model, it doesn’t just happen by accident.’
Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes has no truck with today’s snowflakery.
‘This present-day thing of everyone being hurt and wounded and offended all the time: put a sock in it and pour a double whisky and shut up,’ Lord Fellowes declares.
‘Life is a game of cards. You are dealt certain cards, and all the socio-economic reforms in the world can’t alter that. Human beings are dealt different things. And I admire people who play their cards as well as they can.’ Very well, M’lud.
How cheeky Anne snaffled ‘£100 a wink’ from Countdown bosses
Anne Robinson claims to have devised a cheeky way of earning an extra £1,500 a week while hosting Countdown.

Now, she claims that Countdown bosses were duped into thinking the wink needed to be written into her contract at Channel 4.
‘I told them I get paid £100 per wink,’ the 77-year-old tells me. ‘I said, ‘It’s going to cost you £100 a show’.
‘We film five shows a day, so that’s 15 shows a week, and an extra £1,500.’
