Since soaring to fame, Olivia has always been extremely candid about her struggles with mental health and become an advocate for a host of campaigns to promote positivity and awareness.

In her chat with her fellow reality stars, she divulged: ‘I used to feel guilty for having a bad day, so if I spent the whole day in bed, I wouldn’t brush my teeth, I wouldn’t shower and I had to learn not to feel guilty about that…

‘I think sometimes when you’re so stressed you really do get knackered. You need the sleep so don’t feel bad you need the time to recuperate it helped me to learn and accept that I will always have bad days but you will eventually get out of them’. 

In a rousing message to her pal, Sophie said: ‘You’re such a strong woman, get that inner strength and just bring it out and you can do that. You got this girl.’
