Trisha Goddard relives moment she tried to kill herself after self-harming

The 60-year-old told a Channel 5 documentary that she didn’t want to take her own life but wanted to “make it stop”.

She also admitted to almost taking her own life by overdosing on painkillers.

Trisha still has no feeling in her arm after she self-harmed when she hit “rock bottom” at the height of her fame.

Speaking about her mental health battle, the TV star explained she’d been trying to “escape all sorts of thoughts”.

Trisha explained: “It was 3am and skidding thoughts were going over: 'You're filth, you're crap, you're no good, you think you're a big shot'.

“The next thing I knew I had a knife in my hand. I'd hacked at my wrists.

“Even now I still don't have all feeling in my arm. It took me almost a year of physio. I did not see that as suicide. I saw that as 'make it stop'.”

Trisha was rushed to hospital and kept on suicide watch for over a month until she was in a better place.

Her cancer diagnosis, in 2008, changed her outlook on life.

She explained: “I got told I had breast cancer and then when I was told it had spread somewhat, I was like, 'S*** I want to live.”

Also in the documentary, I’m A Celebrity star and Talk RADIO host Iain Lee opens up about his battle with depression.
