Anne also has Asperger syndrome, and opened up about it on the reality show, saying: "I didn't raise the autism issue... I try not to do that. But if someone else raises it I make it clear I'm happy to talk about it. I really appreciate how nice and sympathetic they've been to me and how supportive they are. And it's nice they say I pick up social cues because I'm never quite sure that I entirely do."
