Thanks to a deluge of cruel messages on social media after an appearance on The X Factor in 2016, including from controversial Katie Hopkins, she admitted that she had found it tough to carry on.

I’m going to constantly wake up and feel sad for the rest of my life so what is the point in being here.

"I was sat in bed thinking this is never going to go," she revealed.

"I'm going to constantly wake up and feel sad for the rest of my life so what is the point in being here. There is no point in waking up and feeling sad everyday.

"I physically couldn't tolerate the pain anymore. It feels constantly constantly heartbroken. I remember feeling this has to go away and it was the first time I thought I'm going to do this, I'm going to end this.

"I remember going to the kitchen and I took as many tablets as I could. I just laid in bed for ages and thought 'hurry up and let it happen'."
