Adventurer Ben Fogle has slammed The Guardian newspaper following its 'grotesque' suggestion that former prime minister David Cameron had only ever known 'privileged pain' despite the death of his son.
The paper was caught up in a storm of outrage for its response to Mr Cameron's memoirs in which he spoke of the 'darkness' his family plunged into when son Ivan died aged six in 2009.
Broadcaster Fogle, who had a stillborn son William with wife Marina in 2014, posted an open letter to The Guardian on Instagram titled 'Pain', adding he 'wants to punch the editor in the face'.
The 45-year-old, who has an older son and daughter, said his grief over the incident 'relapsed like PTSD' when he read the 'despicable' editorial.
In a candid and revealing account, Mr Fogle said he wanted to share his personal pain with the paper around child bereavement, adding it 'doesn't matter who you are, the pain of losing a child is like ripping out your heart'.
