'You can't take risks': Martine McCutcheon discusses living with chronic fatigue syndrome and Lyme disease amid the COVID-19 crisis as she poses for family shoot
Martine McCutcheon has discussed living with chronic fatigue syndrome ME and Lyme disease amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The former EastEnders actress, 44, opened up about her conditions and how people have become 'kinder' amid the crisis in a new interview with Hello! magazine.
Martine suggested people had previously been 'spoilt' by the opportunities of modern life.
The star, who posed for a shoot with husband Jack McManus and their five-year-old son Rafferty in Surrey, said: 'If you have any underlying illness you can't take risks. As with any chronic condition you can have flare-ups. When I go outside I always have my mask and my gloves and take it very seriously.
'I have been really good emotionally for a long time and I have felt a lot calmer. It has been good to realise it is okay to do things at your own pace.'
