“It’s very early days so we’ll see what happens. I hope he comes over (to Scotland to visit),” she told The Sun. “I don’t want to say any more about who he is right now as that would be unfair on him. All I’ll say is we are around the same age and he was a very nice guy.”

    “It’s a very difficult subject to talk about because you always feel that eyes are on you, and people view you as different,” she said. “I like to see myself as someone with a problem, but one I can solve. It is definitely getting better.

    “Since the diagnosis I’ve learned strategies for coping with it and the best one is always to just walk away,” she said.
