Nicola McLean has revealed she has been put back on anti-anxiety medication after her stint in 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Nicola McLean was prescribed diazepam for anxiety when she came out of the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The 35-year-old former glamour model has revealed she was left severely stressed after her stint in the famous abode and while she was on the Channel 5 show she was given three electrocardiograms (ECGs) as her blood pressure was "dangerously high".
The busty blonde had previously suffered with anxiety and had to go back on the same pills she had used to treat her symptoms two years prior to going into the house.
She told the latest issue of new! magazine: "When I came out of 'Big Brother' I had to be put on diazepam because my anxiety was that bad.
"When I was in the house, I had to have three ECGs. My blood pressure was 150 over 100, which is dangerously high and it was anxiety.
"I was put on anti-anxiety medication. I'd been off meds for two years before I went in. I'd been doing so well. I've come out and I'm back on every pill."
Now Nicola - who has sons Striker, six, and 11-year-old Rocky with her former Cyprus footballer husband Tom Williams - is back on track with her life and is desperate to have more children, although she is weary as she has suffered miscarriages before.
Asked if she'd like to add to her brood, she said: "I'd love to, but I've had two miscarriages, which were awful.
"I'd love more kids.
"I think if you have spend your day with children, you have the best day.
"I'm one of those annoying people who doesn't find them hard work. And even when it's hard, I enjoy it."
Meanwhile, Nicola recently revealed she "can barely see" out of her right eye after she developed an "adult squint" int the house.
She recently said: "I have always had bad eyesight in my left eye but my right eye has always been fine and then about two months before 'Big Brother' I noticed my eyesight changing. Now I can barely see out of this eye, I'm talking barely see, I've got a contact in it now."
