The TV and radio star explained suffering with anorexia made her ‘dead for a really long time’ and ‘a shell of a person’ throughout her 20s.
Speaking to Frankie Bridge on her Open Mind podcast, the mother-of-two said she went to the doctor for pain in her lower back, thinking she was doing something wrong in the gym and had pulled a muscle.
WHAT IS ANOREXIA?
Anorexia is a serious mental illness where a person restricts their food intake, which often causes them to be severely underweight.
Many also exercise excessively.
Some sufferers may experience periods of bingeing, followed by purging.
Sufferers often have a distorted view of themselves and think they are larger than they really are.
Untreated, patients can suffer loss of muscle and bone strength, as well as depression, low libido and menstruation ceasing in women.
In severe cases, patients can experience heart problems and organ damage.
Behavioural signs of anorexia include people saying they have already eaten or will do later, as well as counting calories, missing meals, hiding food and eating slowly.
As well as weight loss, sufferers may experience insomnia, constipation, bloating, feeling cold, hair loss, and swelling of the hands, face and feet.
Treatment focuses on therapy and self-help groups to encourage healthy eating and coping mechanisms.

The media personality recalled: ‘When I went to see the doctor, she basically told me that I was going into sort of kidney failure. It was my kidneys because I was just lacking in everything.
‘I think what happened was that part of my life I could control so I was going to the gym twice a day and writing down everything I was eating.
‘It became apparent over the following years that’s what it was but obviously in the midst of it you’re in denial and you’re denying it to everybody else.’
Zoe also revealed she hadn’t had a period for five years, but at the time didn’t realise it was because she was starving herself.
