“It hurts equally deeply, and a lot of people have sent me messages on social media, women and men who have been through it.

The TV star continued: “It hurts. I couldn’t breathe, I called a friend one night and I felt someone sitting on my chest, literally unable to breathe, you get that knot in my stomach, and I’m not leaving, and you think when will this feeling leave me? “
