Now, I’ve been in therapy since my father got diagnosed with cancer nine years ago … My therapy changed a little bit because I was in a very intense relationship, which you can all read about in my book, which is out online now.
‘Alright. So, I do address a lot of those issues. But you know, no, I’m not an alcoholic. No, I’m not a sex addict. You know, I was with the same person for 10 years and that was quite a turmoil, very intense.

Mel, whose father passed away in March 2017 after a hard-fought battle with multiple myeloma, spoke candidly about her upcoming treatment as it is a ‘huge issue for so many people’ and she has hit ‘crisis point’.
Talking to The Sun, she said: ‘I’ve been working with a writer on my book, Brutally Honest, and it has been unbelievably traumatic reliving an emotionally abusive relationship and confronting so many massive issues in my life.
‘I am being very honest about drinking to numb my pain but that is just a way a lot of people mask what is really going on.
‘Sometimes it is too hard to cope with all the emotions I feel. But the problem has never been about sex or alcohol — it is underneath all that.’
