Lily Allen's lonely tears

'Smile' singer Lily Allen finds it hard to cope if she isn't surrounded by friends and family

Lily Allen cries if she is left alone.

The 24-year-old singer - who miscarried the baby she was expecting with her ex-partner Chemical Brother's Ed Simons last year - finds it hard to cope without her loved ones.

She revealed: "I don't like being on my own very much. Just after I had the miscarriage I went into this therapy centre. "The hardest exercise they gave me was to sit on my bed for an hour without a book or a TV or a magazine. I was in tears the whole time. I just couldn't handle it. It was awful. I hated it."

Although she found the experience hard, Lily admits it made her confront certain things about herself.

She said: "There was one exercise where they ask you to draw something. The art therapist said, 'Anything - a colour, a shape.' I burst into tears. I felt like I was being judged and I knew I couldn't manipulate the situation.

"I learnt from it. I know I have to stop doing things for other people and think of myself."
