Loose Women viewers have praised Stacey Solomon for bravely speaking out about her abusive relationship.
The panelist, who is now dating Joe Swash, revealed that you "feel like you're not the same person you were before" as she openly spoke about a past relationship.
The discussion came after a woman in Birmingham asked police to release footage of a sustained attack on her by her partner to raise awareness.
Stacey said: "I was in an abusive relationship and what it does is it makes you forget who you are.
The panel were raising awareness for domestic violence against women
"A part of you does feel like I'm never going to be the same person again and no matter what I do I'm always going to be this weird version of myself.
"You can almost see what you used to be like. You can remember it, you get the feeling, you sometimes act how you used to act."
Fellow host Katie Price who suffered through an abusive relationship herself said it was about "having the balls to leave", but Stacey hit back by saying it wasn't as easy as that.
She added: "I don't think it's about having the balls. I think these people manipulate you in a way that makes that seem normal."
