Evans' ex admits to having two abortions.

THE former wife of DJ Chris Evans yesterday admitted to having two abortions.

Carol McGiffin - one of the presenters on ITV's Live Talk - made the revelation during a studio chat.

The Live Talk team were discussing the case of sales consultant Stephen Hone, who is taking legal action to prevent his girlfriend from having an abortion.

Carol shocked fellow presenter Nadia Sawalha and guest Karen Brady by saying: "You get into a situation where you might get pregnant and not tell the person and then just go ahead and have an abortion.

"I've had an abortion, I've had two in fact. I'm not proud of it but it happens. I didn't want to have a baby and it was an accident.

"The first one I had, the guy went a bit loony. I thought at the time, 'It's my life, it's my right to choose'.

"You can't go changing the law for that because it's open to too many loopholes. The second bloke, I didn't even tell him."

Mr Hone, 24, from Coventry, returned to the High Court in London yesterday seeking injunctions.

He alleges the clinic that agreed to the termination acted against the Abortion Act rules. The private hearing was adjourned until today.
