Candice Brown, Great British Bake Off star, has shared how her mental health issues nearly cost her her life.
In her book Happily Cooking, the TV star and baker talk about her struggles. She says she had days when she couldn’t get out of bed, and other times where she felt “completely ineffective”. She is also prone to anxiety.
According to The Sun Brown admitted in her book that she was “terrified” by the act of barefooting.
“This book is a testament to the fact I just about put one foot infront of the other every day and I am here,” said the star who won Bake off in 2016.
Ironic that a book on food (my favorite thing) and mental illness has almost broken me. It has, in fact.
“This was the most difficult thing I have ever had to do. It has been so difficult to put things down on paper.”
