Marnie Simpson taking TV break to focus on herself

Share article:

Marnie Simpson is taking a break from TV to focus on her mental health.

The 27-year-old star was left "stressed" and "drained" after taking on so many projects last year, so she is taking a step back from the small screen to focus on herself after feeling scrutinized by the public.

Speaking to The Sun Online, she said: "I'm stepping back and I am going to focus on myself for a while.

"I did seven TV shows back to back and it made me so stressed. I felt stressed and drained after I finished "Ex On The Beach".

"I didn't really get to see my family or friends and I was always getting judged by people on social media."

"I've put on two stone in weight and it's made me feel upset.

"I used to be eight stone and now 10 stone six so that's something I want to work on."

However, the brunette beauty is turning her attention to her make-up collection, Both Ways, and her coloured contact lense range, iSpyEyes, which are her biggest passions.

She said: "I've got my business brain on at the moment and I'm really concentrating on that.

"It's my bread and butter and I'm so passionate about my brands.

"I've got a warehouse and now I've got my time to go down and help out.

"It was so stressful doing all that TV. I just want to sort myself out, work on my businesses and have a relaxing holiday."
