During her interview, Andrea spoke about how she didn’t regret quitting Loose Women, a move she says people have called “brave”.

“This is my first time being back on TV and back in the room that we share with Loose,” she said. “It was a [brave decision] and the reason the whole book came about was because at the time so many people said to me you’re so brave to do that thing, to pivot.

“And all I kept thinking was I don’t feel brave, I feel really scared but it was just something I really needed to do.”

What else did she have to say?

She then went on to explain how the book came about.

“And then I thought, right, how can I bottle everything I’ve used to do a brave thing when I’ve felt scared?” she said.

“I put together a 10-day challenge for my lovely community and then saw the results and it made me brave enough [to make the book],” she said.

Elsewhere in the interview with Lorraine, Andrea revealed that she had suffered a “breakdown” a few years ago.

“I had a breakdown a few years ago Lorraine, because I was going and going and going and I didn’t want to look at really what was happening,” she said.

“I was just trying to keep busy and not think,” she continued. “Learn from my mistakes and just stop for a minute.”
