Kym continued: “There’s one particularly spicy scene, and I have to admit it’s a little daunting. I’ve never had to do such intimate scenes, so this is all very new to me.

“Nobody did it. And it’s amazing, because now it would be the first thing I think people would talk about, and that’s really good. That’s really good. I think the interesting story is to tell her story from her point of view, because it wasn’t from her point of view. Much of her behavior was not explained.’

Glenn — whose sister and cousin suffer from mental illness — said a professor at Harvard Medical School’s McLean Hospital would use Alex as an extreme example of borderline personality disorder.

“When I first spoke about it, I heard of people saying, ‘You guys made all people with borderline personality look like monsters,’ the Hillbilly Elegy star recalls.

“And that’s not the point here.”

Kym’s nerves to take on the role came after she was forced to stop making a return to hosting the BBC’s Morning Live, as she struggled with the aftermath of her ‘terrible’ hernia surgery.

Speaking to her co-host Gethin Jones, she said: “I’m really surprised. There was more to it than we initially thought.

‘I’m a person who likes to get up and do things for myself. It’s really hard to sit and do nothing, it’s awful.

“One of the problems with having a hernia is that it’s very restrictive and keeps you from doing the exercises you want to do. This is just killing me now. But I listen to my body, you have to, it’s important.’
