Louise explained that the shortage of HRT has left many women suffering from mental and physical side effects.

Explaining how she felt when she was going through the menopause, Louise said: “Because I wasn’t on HRT at the time, and actually I look back at the film that I did and I kind of feel sorry for that Louise.

“It looks to me like a different person because I was so anxious, I was so shaken up.”
