In a series of tweets TOWIE star Maria Fowler thanked the medical staff who helped her at the difficult time of her life, as well as The Samaritans. 

She also told her followers to believe that there will be a “brighter future” after dark days. 

She wrote: “Four years ago to this week I was in hospital after attempting to take my own life, if it wasn’t for the hospital staff I would either not be here or be living with lifelong health side effects.

“Four years on and I have a beautiful daughter, happy life and free from depression, anxiety & living in a relationship with somebody who took enjoyment out of this. 

“So what I’m trying to say is no matter how dark your days are or how little hope you have that there will be a brighter future. 

“It should never be the end. If I knew what my future had in store, maybe my actions that week would have been different.
