There were tears of joy on last night's 'Operation Transformation' as leader Jean Tierney revealed she was pregnant again.
Viewers will know that Jean lost her little girl Sloane last year at just five days old, and then had a miscarriage later in the year.
On last night's 'Operation Transformation', presenter Kathryn travelled to Jean's Limerick home where she revealed the news which means she will need to withdraw from the show.
While viewers were sad to see her go, everyone was delighted for her big news. Here's hoping Jean still makes it to the 'Operation Transformation' catwalk for week 8 to show off that growing bump.

We are oh-so proud of our very own @JeanTierney7. Sharing chapters of her life on #operationtransformation has been incredibly moving & wonderfully inspiring. And we could not be happier for both herself & Paddy! We, along with the rest of the country, are right behind you JT!
