During an appearance on ITV’s This Morning in 2017, the star said: ‘It’s about time we got rid of this stigma and this grey area about mental health.

Kerry was mercilessly mocked when she made an appearance on the same show back in 2009 and slurred her way through her interview – which she has repeatedly insisted was a result of her medication.

But speaking about mental health on the show years later, she said: ‘I feel amazing. And I’ve got to say, this phase of my life I’ve never had so many wonderful compliments: “You’re looking really well. You’re glowing.”

‘My psychiatrist said to me, ‘Tell the public you’ve had drink and drug problems, but not mental health issues… Because they can’t see it they can’t understand it.’

The Cheshire native said that such attitudes led to her children’s peers branding their famous mother ‘crazy’ during cruel playground taunts.

Kerry lives with Bipolar disorder, which is  is defined by bouts of depression as well as hypomania, which can cause irritability, sleeplessness and hyperactivity.

Bipolar II is said to be difficult to diagnose, although the difference between bipolar I and II is that bipolar II sufferers won’t have experienced a full manic episode.   

Quizzed about the fallout from her own mental health ‘coming out’ on national television, Kerry said it was difficult to deal with people not believing her and instead blaming her well-documented alcohol and drug problems.

She explained: ‘The stigma that’s around mental health, people think you’re crazy.

‘My psychiatrist said to me let the public know about drug problem, the troubled childhood, but not about my mental health. If you can’t see it, you can’t understand it.’  

During the live interview in October 2008, presenters Phillip and Fern were clearly worried about her state and told her they had been contacted by concerned viewers.
