The Call the Midwife star replied: “Yes, I do. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous to be 78 and fat. I was very stupid.
“But now I’ve got there, I am 78 and I’m alive. I have got health problems as a result but I’m battling on and I’m not hating myself. I hated myself for a long time and now I rather love myself actually.”
The heartwarming admission got a round of applause from the studio audience as well as Matt commenting it was “wonderful.”
However, despite the touching moment, the interview was brought to a close a few seconds after in particularly tense fashion.
