Feeling down

As soon as I’m healed from my operation, I’m going to Homefield Grange Retreat in Northampton. It’s all about mindfulness – meditation and yoga – and also healthy eating.

It’s not hardcore bootcamp, but I just want to feel better about myself. I’m feeling really motivated because I’ve felt so s**t recently. I’ve been in tears over my relationship with food. I have real issues.

For example, the other day I bought a kebab and I hid on my own and binged on it. I’ll eat food, and then I’ll feel like I want to be sick. I definitely have some kind of eating disorder.

I hate the way I look – I don’t even want Ryan to see me at the moment. I feel so insecure. I’m not sure why I feel like this. I don’t know if it’s because of my age, or if it’s because Ryan’s younger than me, or if it’s because I’m in the media. I need to do something about it. I want to get back in touch with therapists, The Speakmans, to see if they can help.

Recovering well

I’m currently recovering from my breast reduction surgery. My boobs are so much smaller now! It’s a lot to get used to, but I’m very happy. I feel like I’ve lost about 2st in weight.

I’ve been staying at my mum’s for the past week as I needed to properly rest and just be in bed, but I’ll be going back home soon. I’ve missed the kids so much!

It’s nice being with my mum, especially after her heart attack. I think she wanted me to stay with her longer but it will be good for her to get used to being on her own again. She’s also recovering really well.

She’s completely stopped smoking now – and I’m so proud of her. After 50 years of smoking, it’s an incredible achievement.


I’m all done and dusted in pantomime now, which I am relieved about. It’s always so much fun and I loved every minute of it, but it’s full-on.

As I haven’t been able to do much this week, I’ve been watching lots of TV. I got into Married At First Sight Australia after my tattoo artist Jay Hutton recommended it to me.

There’s so much drama – I’m loving it! I’m also watching The Ultimatum on Netflix, and the new series of The Kardashians. I’m in reality heaven!

Blake blew me away

I loved looking at all the pictures from the Met Gala last week. Kim Kardashian looked drop dead gorgeous in the Marilyn Monroe dress. She admitted she lost 16lbs in just three weeks to fit into it!

I thought Khloe Kardashian looked amazing too, but I wasn’t keen on Kylie Jenner’s outfit choice. For me, I have to say, it was Blake Lively who stole the show. She looked absolutely phenomenal.
