Mrs Brown’s Boys star Fiona O’Carroll has been candid about her split from her co-star husband Martin Delaney.
While appearing on RTE’s Ultimate Hell Week, the 42-year-old broke down as she admitted she was lost and scared.
“I need this. Guess I’m a little lost and rediscovering who I am.”
“I’m emotional. I actually didn’t expect it to be that emotional,” she added.
“I want to do it, but it doesn’t stop me from being scared. I don’t think I will ever be unafraid.”
The leaders calmed her down and told her “everyone is scared”.
“I used to see crying as a weakness, but now I don’t, it’s just a salvation,” she added.

“It’s something I’ve learned over the last three years, I’ve been trying to get away with it since my breakup.”
“I would now describe myself as a strong woman. But there was a time when I didn’t.”
Fiona, who played Maria on the hit series, was married to her co-star Martin, who played Trevor, for 15 years before announcing their split in 2021.
The couple, who met when they were just 16, grew apart as they both wanted different things in life, according to Fiona.
Fiona and Martin have four children together, Felix, Eli, Isaac and Dexter.
