The interviewer, Karl Stefanovic, is then heard asking: “There were reports you had some sort of nervous breakdown. Did that happen?”

She answers: “I really did lose myself.”

According to nine.com.au she added: “I really did lose myself a little bit… Perhaps more than a little bit. I wasn’t so much heartbroken, but just a bit broken. I just don’t want to go through it again.”

The Spinning Around singer, 49, announced her engagement to actor Joshua, 30, in February 2016, but just one year later they parted ways.

In February this year, Kylie told  The Times’ Magazine she experienced a “nervous breakdown” in the wake of their separation.

She said: “I just wanted to stop. I knew I needed to heal my … My physical system was compromised. I think it’s called a nervous breakdown.”

Kylie decided to fly to Thailand with friends to get away from everything, and said: “I think I reacted pretty quickly. I can take a nose dive pretty fast, but I won’t stay there long. I’m too practical.”

Kylie and Joshua announced their break up in February last year, with Kylie telling fans on Instagram: “Thank you for all your love and support throughout this recent chapter of my life.

“Thank you now for your love and understanding with the news that Josh and I have decided to go our separate ways.

“We wish only the best for each other as we venture towards new horizons. #thesunalwaysrises.”

Kylie is currently promoting her new album, Golden, which is released in April.

It marks a new sound for the former Neighbours star, as she recorded some of it in Nashville and experimented with a country music vibe.
