Tamzin Outhwaite doesn't feel "unlovable" following her "shock" split from ex-husband Tom Ellis.
The former 'EastEnders' actress ended her seven-year marriage to the 'Miranda' star last year after he allegedly cheated on her, but Tamzin - who has two daughters, Florence, five, and 20-month-old Marnie Mae with Tom - is now eager to move forward and doesn't feel "damaged" by her very public divorce.
Speaking in the new issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, she said of the split: "It was a complete shock.
"It's been a tough year but when things like this happen to you, your resolve and strength of character come through.
"We are rebuilding quite well. I don't feel unlovable or damaged. I'm thinking about what the possibilities of my future now are.
"I would have done anything to keep my family together but it wasn't to be. I do feel pretty strong."
The 43-year-old actress has credited her close friends for helping her through the painful split.
She added: "Some people didn't mind sitting there listening to me talk and still do. It makes you realise who your friends are - which friends you would go into battle with and which ones you don't mind just going shopping with.
"I feel very lucky to have the love I have in my life, and losing one person doesn't change that."
