Amanda said during the video, which aired to 49.1K subscribers earlier in April: “I think it’s disturbing if I pretend to be that parent of Stepford Wife.

‘No one is. I’m sure I caused them irreparable damage and that they will be in therapy because of me and Martin at some point.

“If I can teach them how to talk about it, say there is nothing to be afraid of or ashamed of with anything you are going through.

“Whether you’re drunk or trying drugs, whatever you do – this place we live in is a safe place where you can say whatever you want.

“This is what I’m looking for and what Martin is also striving for: to create a place where they don’t hide anything. “

Amanda added that it is important to discuss mental health with her children and that they know that some days are “tough” for her, so it’s not a “dirty secret”.

She said, “To hide it from my kids, that sometimes I’m depressed or on antidepressants, what do you say about all these mental health issues? Are you saying they are offensive and shouldn’t be happening? I don’t want that.

During the conversation, Amanda also lamented the bullying online and said her son was once in distress after finding out that a vile troll wished him dead on Twitter years ago.

The star said, “The idea that someone has a mentality to throw these things at people without even thinking about the ripple effect of that. It’s the occasional hatred that I find really upsetting.

Amanda also admitted that she had spent years struggling with insecurities and that regular therapy had helped her overcome it.

She said, “I hated myself for so many years. I thought I wasn’t good enough for any relationship, I wasn’t good enough for my parents or any situation and being in regular therapy is like, “Yeah, I’m going, I’m fine. . ”

It comes after Amanda revealed that she had parted ways with Queen’s Gambit actor Jonjo O’Neill in January, after four years, told fans at the time that she was a “fragile girl.”

The TV star started dating Ireland’s Jonjo, 42, after splitting from fellow actor Martin in 2016 after 16 years together.

The actress announced the split to fans on her Instagram Live, saying, “Unfortunately, no Irish anymore. He’s gone… that’s good, it’s just one of those things.

Amanda alluded to her grief saying she was “very sad for personal reasons” and admitting that she was struggling with the lockdown because she was “home alone,” The Sun reported to the time.

She added, “At the moment I’m quite fragile… I’m a fragile girl at the moment. “

Amanda also joked that she joined a dating app in an effort to combat her loneliness.

She wrote, “I’m continuing on Tinder. No, I’ve never been on Tinder, and neither have I, it was a joke.

“Being alone certainly builds your strength and you get a sense of perspective.

Amanda and Jonjo started dating in November 2016 – nine months after her secret split from The Office star Martin.

They were first made public in October 2018, when Amanda supported it in a Harold Pinter storefront in the West End.

Speaking about their first meeting, she said, “At the end of the night, I went to see him and said, ‘I think we should go have a drink. He was, “Yeah, okay. “

“We were following each other on Twitter and it was really cool, but then I met him and it was like, ‘Oh, you’re cute. I will be brazen ”.

In March 2020, she said the lockdown had brought them closer together. He said, “We love to drink red wine and stuff ourselves with TV shows. I am almost a married woman.

Meanwhile, Amanda previously discussed her split from Martin after 16 years together in an interview with The Sunday Times magazine in April 2018.

She said, “When we broke up nobody knew, we didn’t tell anyone except a few key people because they had to know, because of the logistics of hotels and the like.

“It took six months for it to come out and a lot of it happened while we were working on Sherlock.

“We were professional and we were going to go on and put on a show and be courteous to each other. “

When they broke up, the hopeless romantic Amanda was terrified of being a single mom in her forties and the separation was one of the darkest times of her life.

“I had thought Martin was the love of my life. It wasn’t supposed to happen to us, ”she said in an interview with Red magazine.

“I would wake up every morning with a sudden lurch. ‘Why am I feeling sick?’ I wondered, in the darkness of the room I no longer shared with my partner.

And then, a fraction of a second later, I would remember what had happened. “Oh,” I thought, as the tears started to fall. ‘That’s why’.’

She added, “During this long, lonely week, I had to keep things together for the sake of our children, Joe and Gracie, who were then 10 and 8 years old.

“They needed to be treated. I had to wake them up, cook them breakfast and take them to school and somehow the normality of this routine kept me going. It got me up in the morning.
