    Rachel has always had a passion for fashion and now she’s turning that passion into reality.

    After her previous failed marriage she’s been working with Blake Mill to create something truly unique as a way of expressing her love for Nick.

    The new shirt she has created is called ‘Paradise Found’ inspired by the Maldives and all things seclusion and romance. In the detail, there are coral and turtles.

    This comes after the TV beauty revealed that she's at a high risk of going blind due to her rare health condition.

    Rachel, 47, said that she always receives so many messages about fans worrying about her eye – with many telling her to seek medical help.

    "I think at one point they thought it was pregnancy causing it on me and it just seems now the muscles have given up and it looks very odd at times."

    "I have to make a very conscious effort to make that one the beady eye and it looks much smaller."

    Talking about her fan reaction, she said: "They do all the time 'Rachel, you need to get your eye checked out, Rachel what's going on with your eye?' But because I've got such a bad light intolerance and sometimes it's the cloud cover and my eye just closes.

    "If I do stories and of course, I don't think about it now when I talk but say Nick and I were in Barbados earlier in the year and everyone was like 'Oh my god, there's something wrong, you need to go to a hospital '. No, I really don't…"
