Among those, Madeley revealed she had struggled with her iron levels dropping and wished she had paid more attention to her symptoms.

She said: "I wish I'd taken the first sniff of dropping iron levels more seriously and fully overhauled my diet and supplement/medication approach, instead of thinking some [iron supplement] Spatone and Vit C in the mornings would sort me right out.

"If I had, I would have avoided a lot of scary moments, like fainting on/in various modes of transport, and generally feeling like I can't breathe. As well as looking like a goth."

Madeley responded to a concerned comment on the post saying that she did faint "a few times" while travelling, but always had someone with her who was able to help.
