She added that she wished she'd 'stuck up for herself' when asked to do and say things she wasn't comfortable with.

In an interview with Closer magazine, she said: “There were loads of things that I wish weren’t show, or things that I wish were shown.

“For example, there was one point where Tommy told me a little secret about Anton giving his phone number to a shop assistant and when he told me that one of the producers came up to me and said, ‘You need to tell Anna about that. You need to make sure you tell Anna that that happened’.

“But I was like ‘but he just made me promise that I wouldn’t say’. She said ‘don’t worry, we won’t show that bit, it will be fine, just tell Anna’. I was like ‘Ok, fine’.

“So I told Anna and I know I got a lot of backlash saying I was being unfaithful to Tommy but sometimes you have to do things in there that you don’t necessarily want to do but for the storyline it just makes it work.”

She added: “No disrespect to the producers but it was really hard. Some of the things that happened, it was like ‘for God’s sake, that wasn’t me’.

“I wish a few times that I had stuck up for myself a little bit more and been like ‘no, I am not going to do that because that’s not me’. It’s a TV show at the end of the day.”
