She said: “I haemorrhaged behind my optic nerve four years ago and I’m half-blind in my right eye, they said it was like a stroke but also I got hit in the eye with a bit of rope."

The star continued telling The Sun: "They think I’d had some mini-stroke but a specialist said it has to be the rope, I still don’t know."
