This Morning star Vanessa Feltz was left heartbroken after discovering her fiancé, Ben Ofoedu had been unfaithful towards her.
And the newly single star, 61, has revealed to OK! she has taken on the advice she would tell anyone else to follow, which is taking it "day by day".
She continued: "Otherwise, it’s very easy to catastrophise and think, ‘Everything has changed. I don’t feel normal. I don’t know how long this is going to go on – what if it goes on forever?
"What if I’m never happy? What if I don’t recover?’"
Vanessa added: "You can quickly fast-forward to a place of complete panic, shock and turmoil that whatever it is you thought you could rely on, you can’t, and whatever you thought was a permanent and a constant, isn’t.”
But the star does admit “it’s not easy” to pick yourself up and carry on after suffering from a shocking heartbreak.
Talking about the importance of breaking down the day, she says: “Do it in small increments.
"Just focus on the actual thing you’re doing at the time, and try not to see the whole thing as an engulfing situation of total chaos that’s out of control."
“It’s about being productive. You’re just keeping on keeping on, but you’re doing it in a very small way.
"And you’re still alive at the end of it. I think that’s the way forward.”
Vanessa said her friends have been there for her after the split, revealing the strong bond she shares with Holly Willoughby and Alison Hammond.
“I’ve known Alison for about 21 years, and Holly for 10 – it’s a long time,” she says. “We’re proper friends in real life.
"It’s not just a TV thing, it’s a real thing. Both of those women are 100% there for me, and have been in
various different circumstances.”
Vanessa shocked the nation when she revealed that she was ending her 17-year relationship with musician Ben.
Ben has since tried to win Vanessa back into his life and even shared a tribute to celebrate her 61st birthday.
Last month, he sat down in an interview slamming the claims of his "several affairs", as he shared with GB News: "The whole thing about me having numerous amounts of affairs, and going to holiday camps and sleeping with these different women, and that I'd had several affairs is just not true.
"And it's horrible, I've been getting trolled by practically what seemed like the whole of Great Britain for the last three to four weeks and probably a couple of months, and it's been really, really tough.”
