After admitting how her anxiety got worse through the week, Vicky said she "hated herself" as she wanted to "snap out of it" and be the Vicky that the public crave to see.

The telly star revealed she was "crippled with self doubt and fear" and forced herself to cancel events after realising that she "couldn't face them."

She continued: "I knew what would help me feel better, but I didn’t do any of it- I didn’t talk to my mam or sister or Ercan.

"I convinced myself they had real problems & didn’t have time to listen to my self indulgent whinging."

Vicky added that she cancelled gym sessions, began drinking alcohol every night to drown her feelings and ate unhealthy food.

Admitting that she "did everything wrong", the star said she "crashed" at the end of the week after being left totally "exhausted" from "hiding" her feelings.

She confessed: "I’ve hidden in my flat the entire weekend & it was on one of my idle insta scrolls that I spotted something that really resonated with me.

"When your mental health is bad, when you are struggling, give yourself a break. Don’t make yourself feel guilty for things you can’t do. "

She ended the post, writing: "I’m human & It’s ok for me to have down days. It’s ok for us ALL to have down days. Just so you know. Be kind to yourself."
