Kirsty discussed her painful marital split, dating again and seeking advice from her brother-in-law Russell Brand, 44, as she spoke to Lisa Snowdon on new Fabulous podcast Things I Told My Daughter on Thursday.
The star was interviewed alongside her mother Lesley and revealed Russell helped guide her through ‘grief, trauma and abandonment issues’ in the wake of her divorce by offering some sage advice.
Kirsty and former rugby player Paul Sampson, 42, parted ways in 2015 after five years of marriage and continue to raise their two children.
She said: ‘It’s very upsetting, I feel like I was blaming myself for everything. I’m sure Paul was doing the same. Because you have children in your care. It’s a horrible, horrible burden.’

She added: ‘The last three years have been very tough but it is for anybody getting divorced.
‘Because you go through not only grief, but trauma, almost separation anxiety and abandonment issues in a way. I have talked about before the fact that you come out of it and you feel like you need to be with someone else.’
Since splitting from her husband, Kirsty has been linked to comedian Jack Whitehall, 31, and rugby player Danny Cipriani, 31.
But her brother-in-law, actor and comedian Russell Brand, offered wise counsel in her time of need.

Kirsty explained: ‘Russell said to me, “You just need to be on your own for a while”. And I didn’t listen to him at that point and I just went, “Oh no, I’m not sure I do”.
‘And now I obviously say to him, “You were right” because I’m in a good place and you have to heal. However or wherever that journey takes you.
‘You can hit rock bottom like I did, as soon as you get well again you look back and think “I meant to have gone through this to be where I am now”.’
