“What I did was a suicide bombing,” she told The Sun. “I never thought I wanted to kill myself, but I ended up killing myself.
“I screamed for help when I couldn’t really ask for help.
She said it hit “rock bottom” in September when Britain was put into another lockdown.
“My doctor could feel my liver sticking out because I was so thin,” she said. “I got scratch marks because liver problems made your skin itchy.”

Michelle is married to personal trainer Hugh Hanley and they share children, Faith and AJ.

“And my husband wondered if I would still be alive when he woke up.”
