Andrea McLean, 50, took to social media yesterday to talk about how her life has changed over the past 12 months. The Loose Women panelist told fans she was so “overwhelmed” by her past that she was “unable to function in her present” in a very candid Instagram post.

Mum-of-two Andrea, spoke at length about being “neck-deep in fear” and revealed she will share more details with “brutal honesty” in her new book.

“This Girl Is On Fire,” her post began, referencing the headline of her new release.

She went on to add: “She is NOW… but a year ago? Nope.”

Talking about herself, the ITV star continued in a frank manner: ”She was neck-deep in fear, overwhelmed by her past and unable to function in her present.”

A year on from her breakdown, Andrea told her 271,000 followers that she wanted to share what she had learnt from her experience and how she remains strong.

“I want to share with you every single lesson I learned in overcoming all of these things, and show you how YOU CAN TOO,” the Loose Women star wrote.

“In my new book I share (with brutal honesty) my experiences, the expert advice I was given to help me overcome them and the things I do to keep me strong.

“We all have our pivot moment, when we can’t take any more, of whatever it is that we are going through. I hope my book will help you overcome yours…” she continued.
