It was the star's second episode of Col's Corner

She continued: "I woke up on what felt like a perfectly normal day I made myself a cuppa and let the dogs out when I suddenly realised I feel like ****, yes that's right I was just feeling a little bit naff.

"It was actually all the women who said to me 'are you sure it's not menopause?' and I was like 'no' my mother never mentioned menopause, I don't even know if my mum had a menopause.

"I've been battling against admitting it, but I'm finally admitting it, and I think that is why I'm feeling a bit sad and very forgetful…

The star is a doting mother-of-three

"So I just want you to know that I know we say 'oh it's nature' and 'we have to go through it' nowadays, at least we can talk about it more unlike my mother - who knows what she suffered.

"And I'm glad I've been able to research it and see I'm not going mad, I'm not just depressed for no reason, and I hope it helps to know you can talk about it."

The star made the clip as part of her self-made mini-series Col's Corner which made a comeback earlier this week - and fans were so excited.
