"I decided to share something a little different; my journey from anorexia to a healthy body. Much of it has been a battle but I’m now 18months in a stable and happy weight range."I was terrified of sharing this but I thought that it might be useful to see the polar opposite...who knows...it might even be helpful to another human.”

She continued: "Since the first picture was taken the biggest thing that has changed is that I have moved into my own flat. It doesn’t seem massive but if you had told me 16 months ago I would have been secure, stable and happy enough to look after a home, i probably would’ve slapped you across the face to make you see sense.”

Fans of the actress flocked to the comments to congratulate her on her strength and wish her well in the future.One said: “Wonderful to speak out about your journey. It will help so many, so much love.”Another wrote: “Good on you girl! You’re in a fight so keep talking and sharing with your family and friends and followers. Very proud of you”.
