She shared a picture of herself at the spa on Instagram and 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)."

The Strictly Come Dancing runner-up previously spoke out about her battles with anxiety, admitting some days she cries over the smallest things.

Georgia confessed: "Some days I'm distracted and fine, other days it takes me dropping a sock on the way to do a wash, which means I won't have a pair when the washed ones come out to literally have a break down and cry. So silly.

"But the thing with anxiety is it's not always the heartbreak, the pain, the loss, the argument with a friend that makes it bad. It can be anything and everything...

"But just tell yourself. It's ok. It's going to be ok. And it's ok not to be ok! (sic)"

And she also revealed her belief that social media is bad for people's mental health.

Referencing model Gigi Hadid's phone case, which reads "social media seriously harms your mental health", Georgia, 28, told her followers: "I just want to say thank you once again for the most incredible response to the post I put on about anxiety. I've never had a response like that.

"It got me thinking again about something this morning. So did anybody see the picture that went round about Gigi Hadid with the phone case that said, 'Social media seriously harms your mental health'?

"Yes, Gigi for being honest. Think about it: She has everything, everything that most people want. Loads of people aspire to be like her, they wanna look like her, dress like her, have her ex-boyfriend.

"It's mental. It just shows that no matter how happy someone can look on social media, how rich they can be, how famous they are, how successful they are, when you open your phone and you see other people looking the way they looking and acting the way they act, it will for ever not make you feel good enough.
