She has used her role as a presenter to bear everything about her mental health in the hope that her bravery will help others who are going through similar situations.
She told OK!: “I had the most dreadful crash where I was depressed, I had anxiety to the point where I could not get out of bed, and I’m an energetic person.”
Andrea has actually taken anti-anxiety medication for 2 years but after a “spat” with her partner, her fight against stress and anxiety came to a significant halt.
She has fearlessly opened up about her least expensive point in her battle and the suicidal thoughts that plagued her.

” Alone in my hotel room, I wanted to end it all ideal then.
” I believed they would be embarrassed that I ‘d been so weak.
The star had been combating her stress and anxiety for months but her household and good friends had no concept.
The husband and wife have been to couples counselling and Andrea confessed to the press: “We weren’t going due to the fact that we were in difficulty, we were going because I was in trouble.”
In the past the TV star has recalled breaking down in tears in a grocery store, and having a hard time to breathe after an argument with a driver.
