Mel recalled the terrifying nightmare, telling The Sun on Sunday: “I went down the stairs because I thought my ex-boyfriend had cut my finger, I thought it really happened because he was threatening to do so.

‘I was convinced that my finger was gone and that my mother had to reassure me that it was still there.

I have to remind myself that I live in the present and that flashback is my brain playing tricks on me.

Mel and Stephen separated in December 2016, and presenter Belafonte was accused of “emotional and physical abuse”.

Speaking about her struggle with PTSD after their divorce was finalized in 2017, Mel told Lauren earlier this year: “Unfortunately, I lived through a ten-year marriage that was very abusive on every level.

When I came out, I decided it was time to talk about it, and by talking about it, I didn’t realize how many people were in the same situation.

“It’s everything I’ve been through and still struggle with because of that abusive relationship.”

Mel also discussed how she attempted suicide just days before The X Factor 2014 finale.

On her suicide attempt, Mel said: “There is a statistic that three women take their lives every week to escape from this type of relationship.

“That’s exactly what I did in 2014. Fortunately, I was one of the lucky ones and I went through the other side and I’m here to tell my own story. It’s important that you get treatment, be kind to yourself. I’m still waking up, I woke up this morning with a lot of anxiety, just Shocked, “No, I’m not with that person anymore. I’m fine.”

I build myself up and heal myself. I have a lot of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) treatment for PTSD and anxiety. It’s just a business trip that I will always work on.
