‘I was lying there night after night worrying about telling Mark as he had been telling me that it would all catch up and I would get myself into doubt.’She added: ‘I thought I was going to have a breakdown, I did, I really did. That initial panic telling Mark when he’d been telling me about debt… and with my kids…

‘I felt ashamed.’
