The 61-year-old actress revealed she suffered a breakdown during a trip to Ibiza with her Loose Women co-stars and Stacey flew back to London with her and helped her family get her into rehab.
She told The Sun newspaper:
‘Stacey came with me. I was in a terrible state, so we played games on her phone just to try to distract me.
‘I was thinking, “What am I going to do? Where am I going?” I was scared, embarrassed and ashamed because my kids had been told their mum was in a state and needs help.
‘When we got to the clinic, they all met us there and when I saw their worried faces all I could think of was, “Oh no, what have I done to them?”‘.
Linda’s family – husband Mark, 59, daughters Lauren, 37, and Bobby, 23, and son Louis, 28 – had become worried about her after she started using alcohol to help her sleep.
Linda – who suffers from anxiety – later discovered her erratic behaviour was being caused by a rare allergic reaction to an anti-depressant and she is now on the road to recovery.
‘I had reached breaking point and the reason I’m telling you this now is because I want anyone else who might be feeling the same way to read this and know that they’re not alone and that things can get better for them too.
‘They just have to accept help, like I did’.
