Explaining how she reached rock bottom, she said: “I’d always tell people I’m fine when inside I’m crying but I’d never say it.

“I went to The Priory and booked in and said, ‘I don’t want to leave here, I want to be an inpatient, help me to sort out my head, this is my last chance to do it, I don’t want to die, I don’t want to kill myself, help me.'”

And Katie insists it is the “best thing” she has ever done.

“I’m not proud of it but I had nobody close to me to talk to, they’d all betrayed me at some point, there were few people I could trust.
