On dealing with her divorce from ex Simon Konecki with her 8-year-old son Angelo: “My anxiety was so terrible, I’d forget what I had or hadn’t said to Angelo about separating. Obviously Simon and I never fought over him or anything like that. Angelo’s just like, ‘I don’t get it.’ I don’t really get it either. There are rules that are made up in society of what happens and doesn’t happen in marriage and after marriage, but I’m a very complex person. I’ve always let him know how I’m feeling from a very young age because I felt quite frazzled as an adult.”

On weight loss: I think one of the reasons people lost the plot was because actually, it was over a two-year period. It was because of my anxiety. Working out, I would just feel better. It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it. I work out two or three times a day…so I do my weights in the morning, then I normally hike or I box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night. I was basically unemployed when I was doing it. And I do it with trainers. It’s not doable for a lot of people.”

On her music release strategy: “I think I’m actually one of the most punk artists around. My music, absolutely not. But the way I move is very punk. I was drunk as a fart on 21; I really don’t remember much, I just remember being really sad. On 25, I was obviously sober as anything, because I was a new mum. That one, I was sort of more in tune with what I thought people might want or not want. With this one, I made the very conscious decision to be like, for the first time in my life, actually, ‘What do I want?’”
