Emma Willis has broken down in tears as she recalled the moment she rushed her eldest daughter Isabelle to hospital after realising she hadn't been getting her breastmilk.

The 45 year old welcomed Isbaelle, now 12, in 2009 but felt like a "bad mum" when she was not able to produce enough milk to breastfeed.

She attempted to feed her daughter for three days before realising no milk was coming out, rushing her to hospital.

Emma opened up on the traumatic moment as she spoke to friend Giovanna Fletcher on the I'm A Celebrity… winner's Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast.

She said: "I felt like a bad mum because for the first three days at home, I felt like I'd been feeding her 24 hours a day, but really no milk had been coming out.

"So she'd had nothing. And literally she just turned and you could just see it and I took her to A&E immediately."

Emma went on to say that, despite her struggles, she continued to attempt to breastfeed as she felt judged by fellow mums.

She continued: "I still continued to try to breastfeed for as long as I could because that was the thing to do.

"Everybody that came in to visit me, I felt like I was looked down on.

"I was like, 'I am persevering, but she wants more and I haven’t got any.' So I had to top her up."

It was at that point that emotions came over The Voice host as she began to cry.

"After six weeks of trying so hard, I was so down and so depressed and just crying all the time because I wanted to, I wanted to do the best for her, that my mum just went, 'Stop it.'

"Oh it gets me all upset thinking about it. 'Stop it, Emma. Honestly, you’re driving yourself mad when all she needs is for you [voice cracks]… Aah, Gi! What have you done? [sniffs] For you to give her the best start'" she continued.

'And if that is from your boob or from a bottle, just give her love, which you are. But you being this way is not the best thing for her.'

"So I got a bottle and a bit of formula and it was just happy days from then on."
