Melanie Sykes has opened up about her struggles living with autism and anxiety.
The TV host was diagnosed with autism last year and in a confessional video posted on social media, Sykes talked about her ongoing anxiety battle and how her life has changed since being confirmed as autistic.
Sykes said to her 300k followers: "Something incredible finally happened, I've been trying to get myself a prescription for medicinal cannabis and I was finally able to get an appointment with a few GPs who agreed that medical cannabis would help with unmasking my autism."
She went on to say: "The more I unmask and start getting rid of my thick skin and being open with other people, I've become even more sensitive than I already am.
"Therefore I have been experiencing a lot of anxiety. Some of you will know I've been in the process of coming back from a huge breakdown so I'm thrilled. It's going to be a huge experiment and hopefully it works for me so let's see."
Sykes also described how she has been taking CBD oil for a while to help with her anxiety, particularly when it comes to crowded places.
The former host of Let's Do Lunch has previously discussed if being diagnosed as autistic earlier in life would have impacted her entertainment career.
Talking to John Bishop for his podcast, she said: "There's no space for autistic people in this world.
"This is another thing that I'm going to change. Because there is no walks of life where it's okay, people are still scratching their head about autistic people and what does it mean."
Sykes currently presents Shop Well For Less alongside Joanna Page on BBC One.
