Celebrity Big Brother 2010: Stephanie Beacham talks about suicide attempt

Celebrity Big Brother housemate and Stephanie Beacham has admitted that she once attempted to commit suicide.

During a heart to heart, Stephanie told Vinnie Jones and Heidi Fleiss that she was almost killed when she drove straight at a lorry.

She said: “I was at a time when I thought everyone would be better off without me and my kids would be better with my mother.”

“I drove towards the truck and did not sway… I was straight for the lorry.”

But the lorry driver managed to swerve and avoid the crash explained Stephanie: “The truck nearly went off the road.

“When it didn’t happen I thought OK, I will go home and I’ll chop myself…”
