The singer has recently returned to her music career after 15 years.

Earlier this week the star showcased her sultry music video for her brand new single, Say I’m Not Alone.

Even though Martine is back on form her showbiz career hasn’t always been easy.

After starring in Love Actually, alongside Hugh Grant and Keira Knightley, her career kept going from strength to strength and she ended up landing a role in My Fair Lady.

But the stress dramatically affected her health.

The 41-year-old ended up contracting ME (myalgic encephalopathy) after going bankrupt in 2013 and said that she “couldn’t move out of bed for days”.

The actress also admitted to having suicidal thoughts. She revealed: “Every muscle in my body ached, I felt like I had a permanent hangover, and then I started not being able to move my legs, which was terrifying… I do believe I literally crippled myself with stress.

“I woke up in bed one day not knowing what time it was, feeling boiling hot and not being able to get up to open a window. I remember saying to myself: ‘It will be better if you don’t wake up.’

“I would tell Jack to leave me, to find someone else. He had to wash my hair, put me in the shower, feed me.”
