"Secret Diary was a stressful time. I had started leaving Winston. I was finishing breast-feeding, which is really emotional.

"I don't know what warrants post-natal depression," she said.

But she was determined to fight the baby blues and refused to take any medication.

"They prescribed pills but I never took them. Pills frighten me. They're a road to nowhere. I feel I'm too strong in mind and spirit for pills," she said.

"I didn't feel it was that desperate - it was just a bad day," she added.
