Former Coronation Street star Georgia May Foote has opened up about the after-effects of surviving an abusive relationship.
The actress, 28, admits she was left depressed, anxious and questioning the point of her own life following a nasty break-up.
The Strictly star spoke to her followers via Instagram video post during Mental Health Awareness week, and revealed she sought professional help after ending an "abusive" relationship and moving back to her native Bury, Lancashire.
She said: "In 2018, I came home from London, I came out of a really awful break-up, through an abusive relationship, and I came out feeling very lowly of myself.
"I got very depressed, I questioned everything about myself, about life, about my career, about my friends and my family."
I got very depressed, I questioned everything about myself, about life, about my career, about my friends and my family.
Georgia, who has since started dating Kris Evans, continued: "I felt very lonely and was having panic attacks all the time.
"There was a time when I thought I generally [sic] can't do this. It was hurting me inside."
The soap star also explained how she was referred to a service called Healthy Minds, in Bury, which she credits with saving her life.
She said: "I was always a bit sceptical, but I'm telling you, I might not have been here without that service, alongside my friends and family, being open and talking about it."
It's not the first time Georgia has spoken up about her mental health and the effects of a relationship she has described as "the worst".
It's understood that Georgia broke things off with model George Alsford in January 2018 after a series of arguments during an 18-month relationship.
At the time, a source told The Sun: "They tried to make it work but called it quits after a series of arguments. Georgia has been left devastated, as she really thought he was The One. She's been struggling."
Writing about her new relationship with rapper Kris, she recently said: "Some people are just good. They make you think about things differently. Sometimes you agree and sometimes you don’t. Even if you do end up going back on your stubborn opinion and agreeing in the end anyway. Some people are kind, generous, caring, loving.
"Those people are hard to find. When you find one, if even when you really annoy them, still tells you they love you, listen and believe it. I never believed I'd find someone after what I've been through. Thank you @krisevansmusic for loving me."
