Charlotte Dawson has revealed that she has plans to turn her placenta into tablets so she can eat it after she gives birth to her first child.

The former Ex On The Beach star, who is the daughter of the late comedian Les Dawson, revealed that she has packed freezer bags to take to the hospital so she can freeze the placenta so it can be made into pills.

Speaking on a now-deleted Instagram live, seen by The Mirror, the star revealed: "I've got a freezer bag for freezing my placenta ready.

"I'm getting it made into pills and tablets."

When a fans asked if her fiance Matthew would also be ingesting the tablets, the star said: "Matthew isn't sharing the tablets."

The pills are made by the placenta being dehydrated, and then ground down and put into capsules.

A whole placenta can make up to 200 pills, which can be taken daily, as many believe they can improve energy levels and improve the quality of breast milk.

Last month, in the interview with new, the reality star opened up on how she is currently coping with her pregnancy, describing herself as "hormonal" and "tired".

Charlotte said: "I am 33 weeks pregnant and feeling knackered.

"I’m shattered. Reality is I’m tired, I’m moaning all the time, I’m hormonal, I’m hungry.

"I just want to just chill, and I just can’t because I’m that busy.

"I’m finding it very difficult, especially with the gestational diabetes, with finding out what to eat properly, with not spiking my blood sugars… I’ve been very hormonal and I've been crying a lot.
