She said: “Towards the end of my stay in the house, I was getting really sad, I wasn’t smilling anymore, I wasn’t happy. Then, coming out in that shocking way, coming out to face the world and hear what people had to say about me and seeing all the love, knowing that my life had actually changed. So, I needed that time away, I didn’t just want to be overwhelmed, I didn’t want to break down, that was the best thing for me to do.”
