And taking to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday 16 March, the 31 year old former reality star spoke openly and honestly about her mental health to her followers.

“I am proud of myself though because yesterday I lent into my anxiety, and I managed the gym, a swim and a short visit and a short visit from my godmother who is staying within my mum all the way from the US.”

Louise explained in a further Instagram Story, that featured a floral background: “Yesterday I actually wrote this to myself.

“I’m not not living. I’m just not enjoying living!!!! I feel like something is blocking my head.

“And that was as positive as I could get. A nice reminder that I’m not not living. I am still here.”
