Catherine Tyldesley has posted a tearful selfie as she urged people to talk to each other.

Lockdown has brought up many emotions for many people. Some days have been incredibly hard. Dark. Unworkable. When my mum was in ICU I could barely function. It seemed all I could do was cry. I couldn’t parent. My inner child simply craved my mums touch… Thus I felt shame/mum guilt for not being able to ‘mother’ my own son. I’m lucky- I have a brilliant hands- on husband who has been the greatest support to us. Some people don’t have anyone. I can’t bare to imagine that. Teamed with a huge change in my hormonal balance – last month was nothing short of horrendous. It’s massively important to me that we all #TALK . We must help each other. That is why TODAY at 1pm I am joining the most wonderful panel to do just that … talk. We will be going live on @drjonquillechantrey at 1pm.
