Shocking: Former TOWIE star Pascal Craymer has revealed that she has attempted to commit suicide five times in the past year

After appearing on The Only Way is Essex in 2013 for a very brief period of time, Pascal claimed she struggled to find work and turned to a party hard lifestyle.

Pascal recalled first feeling suicidal when she learned of the shock death of her friend and former Love Island star Sophie Gradon, who died aged 32.

The reality star admitted that in the months that followed she continued to spiral and ended up in a really ‘dark place’, she said: ‘I was getting trolled all the time and being told I was fat and ugly. 

‘I could not make a relationship work and I was drinking three or four bottles of wine over lunch then switching to vodka at night.’

Pascal also revealed that during this time she developed an eating disorder and began harming herself.

Describing her first two suicide attempts as a ‘cry for help’, Pascal said she was discovered by her sister Kendal both times and rushed to hospital for treatment. 

However just a month later she tried to commit suicide again.

Recalling the seriousness of the event, she said: ‘The doctors told me I was so malnourished I would probably be dead in two weeks if I didn’t get treatment.’

Reality star: During her time on TOWIE, Pascal dated Mario Falcone, 31, while he was on a break from his then girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh

At this point Pascal deleted all of her social media accounts in a bid to move anyway from the judgemental comments she had been receiving from trolls.

However after spending time at the Priory she relapsed and began heavily drinking again. In the months that followed up until April 2019, Pascal said that she made a further two attempts on her own life.

Pascal said that she is now trying to recover with the aid of a counsellor and her new insurance broker boyfriend, Mark Baptist, 31.  

During her time on TOWIE, Pascal dated Mario Falcone, 31, while he was on a break from his then girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh.
