She said she was helped by NHS service Healthy Minds – which offers support and treatment to people experiencing symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, low mood, stress, worry or anxiety, feelings of low self worth or panic attacks – based in her home town of Bury, north west England.

She said: “In 2018 I came home from London. I came out of a very awful break up through an abusive relationship.

“I came out thinking 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 felt very lonely and was having panic attacks all the time.

“There was a time when I thought I generally can’t do this. It was hurting me inside.

“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.”

And in July last year, the 28-year-old actress revealed had treated herself to a spa day after a “particularly tough” struggle with anxiety.

She wrote: “My brain is going to explode. I know I have always been open about my anxiety but this week has been particularly tough.

“So I scooped myself up and went to my fave place @titanic_spa all by myself for some me time.

“I’ve finished another book, had a massage, eaten good, and completely relaxed.

“Look after yourself guys always, self care and self love is very important. If you can’t get away to do this then give yourself a spa day at home (sic).”
