Amy Hart has confessed she's considering going through IVF on her own next year after being told she could suffer early menopause.
The 28-year-old, who recently said her childhood is over after moving out of her family home, spoke exclusively to OK! Online about her thought process on the matter as she promoted Buzz Bingo.
The former Love Island star froze a total five eggs in early March after revealing her family has a history of early menopause. She explained: "My mum, my nan and my auntie all went into menopause at 41. So, for me it was a no brainer."
Amy added that she's more than sure she wants to experience being a mother and isn't picky about how she achieves this goal, whether it's through the eggs she had frozen, adoption or fostering.
However, if she doesn't settle down with a significant other soon, it appears Amy is ready to take the plunge by herself and go through IVF solo.
When asked how she would feel about raising a child on her own, she said: "Oh 100 per cent, I was actually talking about having solo IVF next year. Lots of people say, ‘Why would you do that – a baby deserves a mum and a dad’.
"But I've got so many friends that had children with their boyfriends, their fiancés, their husbands and have ended up single mums with dads who want nothing to do with the babies."
Amy, who recently revealed she and ex Curtis Pritchard still "check up on each other" since moving on from their explosive split, added: "I think as long as you've got a good network around you which I have, you’re fine."
The blonde beauty also recently appeared on ITV's Loose Women, where she opened up on the decision to freeze her eggs.

"I’ve got five [eggs] in the freezer and then they managed to grab four more, which were a little on the small side. But if they progress in the next few days, then they'll be able to put those in the freezer as well," she said.
She continued: "I am [relieved], I’ve had quite a lot of uncertainty whilst I was doing this round, I’ve had two failed rounds."
When asked about what made her go ahead with the procedure, she explained that the women in her family all had children "by the time they were 25," but went through early menopause in their early 40s.
"I went for a fertility MOT and all the results showed that I’m heading for that same sort of timeline," she said.
Amy continued: "My mum said one day, ‘I would never let you miss out on it, so I’d always support you if you had a baby on your own’.
"And then because it was framed so positively from my mum, it was fine because I’m going to do that anyway. If I meet someone, amazing, but if not, then I can have a baby."
