Ulrika Jonsson hints her depression has returned as she admits she's 'going through some s**t' in candid Instagram post
ULRIKA Jonsson has hinted her depression is back – after she admitted she's going through some "s**t" in a candid Instagram post.
The star, 52, took to social media to reveal she's struggling with her mental health, sharing a picture of herself cuddling up to her dog.
And she wrote: "Don’t mind saying I’m going through some s**t at the moment. An old feeling has returned. Maybe it never properly went away.
"But I’m so eternally grateful for my dogs.
"They can’t solve anything; can’t change things but they are by my side every step of the way.
"And are the best levellers."
Ulrika previously opened up about her battles with depression, insomnia and memory loss when she hit the menopause – and said she thought her head was going to burst.
She said earlier this year: "I'd never had anxiety before but I was having a major panicky meltdown.
"One day I thought my head was going to burst… then there's memory loss, sleeping problems, depression."
The Scandanavian beauty has also opened up to her 21,000 Instagram followers about her struggles, often posting make-up free selfies when she's having a bad day.
One reads: "Yesterday was tough. Dealing with a lot of things.
"And yes, I know there are always people worse off. But that's not how it works.
"Please don't feel obliged to leave kind comments – I'm not fishing for sympathy. You're a kind lot, I know #copingnotcoping #mentalhealth #keepingbusytoday."
Another selfie taken in a dark room is captioned: "It's been quite the couple of days."
He fans were quick to send their support.
One said: "Hope you're ok lovely and remember tomorrow is another day."
Another wrote: "Can't stop thinking about you after that post. Hope today is a better day."
The Swedish TV presenter became the UKs pin-up when she dominated our TV screens in the 90s, first as TV-am weathergirl and then as Gladiators host.
Sadly she hasn't had much luck in love, having four children by four different fathers due to her "romantic dreams having fallen apart".
Ulrika's going through her third divorce, from American advertising exec Brian Monet – and this hasn't helped her anxiety.
The split wasn't one she wanted and the pair tried counselling.
She has said: "If I'm honest, getting another divorce age 51 is not where I thought I would be. I just don't know what shape my future will take.
"Let's just say, I am a work in progress. I will die being unfinished… but that's probably not a bad thing."
