Speaking to Loose Women Panelists Andrea McClean, Gloria Hunniford, Stacey Solomon and Nadia Sawalha she said:

"The kids are all back to normal. I don't blame Pete for doing what he did in the beginning

"Basically my ex said I was self medicating and he acted what [how] the dad does.

"Everything's back to normal now."

She admitted that she was self medicating herself with drugs and explained that it was her way of coping from traumatic experiences that landed her in rehab hospital The Priory which has previously had famous patients including Kerry Katona and Robbie Williams.

Revealing the ins and outs of the tough time she's had she said: “It’s good to be back, I’m feeling in a good place. Last year I obviously wasn’t but you can’t blame me, so much went on.. So much for a human being to cope with.

"It was a nightmare so I went to the doctors and said I’m not myself. I wouldn’t go horse riding, I just wanted to sleep all the time, I couldn’t turn to anyone.  So I went into the Priory, I wasn’t a resident in there, I literally took the kids to school went in there for the day and picked the kids up after.”

But things are on the up for the mum-of-five who has recently passed a bill called Harvey's Law through parliament in order to combat online trolls.
