A mum-of-eight who lives off benefits says she's addicted to pregnancy and doesn't care people call her trashy or lazy.
Marie Buchan, who is known as "Octomum", says she doesn't care people think she's only having babies for money.
The single mum, from Birmingham, first hit headlines when she appeared on the Channel 4 show Only Human in 2016.
A scene of that episode has recently resurfaced on TikTok where she says: "I am addicted to pregnancy, I'm addicted to birth and feeding, I'm addicted to that.
"I think a lot of people do see me as trash really. Lazy, useless, just producing babies for money."

When speaking about one of her children she said: "She's a happy baby, That's why I could very easily do it again."
It has been reported she that received £500 in benefits a week - which is about £26,000 a year.
Marie has seven girls and one boy who are now aged between six and 18.
The mum has also appeared on the Channel 5 show Benefits Britain: Life On The Dole where she claimed to work 21-hour days looking after her kids.
However, the mum has come under fire for appearing to use her state handouts to fund a lavish lifestyle.
She sparked outrage when she appeared on This Morning saying life was better on benefits and she would spend her wages on a boob job.
Last year she saved up for a boob job through car boot sales and part-time work to cover the operation rather than dip into her benefits.
Last December, she sparked outrage over her decision to fly to Spain alone after the Christmas holidays.
She said she needed a break from her children, who she has had to take care of for "most of the year" as schools were shut due to the pandemic.
"Government claimants like myself, a mum of eight, are forgotten," she told Metro.co.uk.
In January, Marie said she was rushed to hospital after testing positive for Covid.
She had lost her sense of taste and smell and developed a cough but also had been vomiting and suffering nose bleeds.
She was self-isolating at home by locking herself in her bedroom while her kids fended for themselves downstairs.
Marie was discharged and brought home less than a week later.Read More Read More
