Driven to despair

I’m traumatised – my car was stolen right in front of me. It was horrible. I watched it being driven off with £300 of presents
in the back.

I’ve been burgled before but what triggered me about this was the police saying I’d been watched and deliberately targeted. That really scared me.

I tried to run after the car but I had Heidi and DJ with me. They were crying, screaming, it was awful. Heidi is still traumatised and I’m so shaken up. I can’t believe how everything fell apart like that.

2022 goals

I think resolutions are stupid! The only resolution people should keep is to make the next day better than the last, because you never know what is around the corner. It’s been such a hard time for so many people and it’s best to count your blessings and be grateful for what you have.

Every day, I want to be the best version of myself for everyone around me. I want to remain in a positive headspace. Having said that, in a year’s time I want to be able to say I own my own home.

Here’s hoping!

Everyone struggles

I’ve been struggling mentally recently – but that’s OK. I find that when you accept it’s fine not to be feeling on top form and reach out to those close to you, you get a sense of relief and start feeling positive again.

Going through a hard time doesn’t stop me speaking out about my mental health, as I think it helps people who are going through a similar battle themselves. Even though I go on stage and perform, and though I may seem fine and happy, I panic and get nervous.

I have panic attacks regularly and it’s important for people to realise that everyone suffers mentally, in one way or another. It doesn’t matter who you are or the size of your house, everyone goes through struggles.

When I sense a wave of anxiety coming on, I hold on to my children. They calm me down and reassure me it’s all going to be OK.

My dream day on hold

I was absolutely gutted that Molly couldn’t come home after she tested positive for Covid. It was all I wanted for our perfect Christmas.

Me, Ryan and Max tested positive too, and my Mum. I couldn’t believe it but the whole country was in the same boat with so many people testing positive right now. I feel awful for everyone going through this.

We will just have to celebrate Christmas later this year. I’m not taking my decorations down until we all get to celebrate together – even if that means we’re doing it in May!
