Morning Live presenter Kym Marsh has opened up about her mental health in the wake of her dad David's cancer diagnosis.
The 45 year old revealed that 2021 was "really tough", after her dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and added that she'd been "suffering from really bad anxiety attacks".
The star also admitted that it was this that prompted her to take a break from her presenting duties on Morning Live.
During her latest shoot with OK!, Kym and her Army Major husband Scott Ratcliff exclusively revealed what life has been like since they tied the knot last October, including Kym taking up talk therapy and an update on her dad's health.
Explaining how she felt in the wake of the heartbreaking news, Kym said: "Last year was really tough, especially after my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer; that hit me like a tonne of bricks."
She continued: "I started suffering from really bad anxiety attacks and I knew I had to take some time away from work and spend some time with my family."

Speaking about her mental health now, Kym said: "I've been having talk therapy which I find really helps. I'm in a good place now and looking forward to getting back to work."
Kym added that her dad Dave, 76 is "doing OK" following his diagnosis.
She elaborated: "His body is responding to the treatment well, but it’s not without its side effects. He’s still battling with pain and he’s not as mobile as he used to be. But overall he’s doing well and my mum is fantastic with him."
Meanwhile Kym's husband Scott, 33, added: "Looking back at the options that we were presented with, I think he’s doing better than we could have hoped. He’s got guts and he’s making a heck of the job of it."
Scott and Kym tied the knot in an emotional ceremony held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in October last year.
The big day, which was exclusively covered by OK!, saw Kym being walked down the aisle by her dad, Dave, 76, who just months before had been diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer.
