She revealed: ‘On the days we were shut and towards the end of the year I said, “I don’t know if I can do this on my own if lockdown happens again. I just can’t do it.”
‘I need to be on the go all the time and that silence and darkness on top of a brain that can be quite dark anyway was a lot.’
Candice’s split from Liam was revealed in August, after reports claimed he moved out of the pub they had lived in together in Milton Keynes.
The pair had been together since meeting in a bar Liam worked at while studying for a degree in 2012, and had announced their engagement in 2017, a year after she appeared on Bake Off, winning the show.
The couple tied the knot at Château de Varennes in Burgundy, France, in September 2018, but announced their split just a weeks shy of their two-year wedding anniversary.
She revealed that she has been diagnosed with clinical depression, PTSD and chronic phobia after suffering with her mental health for several years.
