A long period of ill health badly affected her state of mind, she says in an interview with the Observer Magazine

The director, writer and performer Kathy Burke experienced suicidal impulses as a result of the menopause, she has confided in an interview with the Observer Magazine this weekend.

Burke, 58, who has survived a string of serious physical health scares during her career, reveals that her more recent struggles with mental health may have been the hardest to conquer. In a discussion about attitudes to death ahead of the launch of her podcast, Where There’s A Will, There’s A Wake, she explains that for a difficult period in her early 50s she continually planned the best way to kill herself.
