During her final interview with Ant and Dec, Ruthie described her experience as a “rollercoaster”.

However, the time away from her loved ones really gave her a chance to think.

She explained: “It was definitely brutal, but you have absolutely no control in there.”

Ruthie added: “The rollercoaster of emotions is ridiculous. You start thinking about things you haven’t thought about in years. You’re falling from emotional to emotional. But everyone in there was delightful.”

“I felt like I was just having a chat with a mate and it was only afterwards I thought about the ramifications.

“I could have made some money and sold the story, damn.”
