‘I have no regrets at all, 100 per cent. I look back really fondly on my time there, and I was so lucky. I had the best job in the world but it just didn’t fit anymore,’ she told the Mirror. 

‘That’s not a bad thing, we all change and you’re not the same person a decade later. Most of us will outgrow our jobs at some point.’

She added: ‘Because I was doing This Girl Is On Fire on the side it just became clearer that this is what I wanted to be doing. Most of us will outgrow our jobs at some point.’

It comes after she admitted that it was a ‘big decision’ for her at the time as she appeared on Lorraine on Monday to speak about her new book You Just Need to Believe It. 

Andrea said people told her at the time that she was ‘brave’ for making the decision, saying their words inspired her to write her fourth book, which aims to help people change their life in 10 days.

She told Lorraine: ‘This is my first time being back on TV and back in the room that we share with Loose. It was a [brave decision] and the reason the whole book came about was because at the time so many people said to me you’re so brave to do that thing, to pivot.

‘And all I kept thinking was I don’t feel brave, I feel really scared but it was just something I really needed to do. 

‘And then I thought, right, how can I bottle everything I’ve used to do a brave thing when I’ve felt scared and I put together a 10 day challenge for my lovely community and then saw the results and it made me brave enough.’

Andrea also revealed that she had a breakdown a few years ago as she was trying to ‘keep busy’. 

She said she was trying to keep busy rather than take time to think about how she felt or what was happening, as she urged others to ‘learn from my mistakes’.

Andrea explained: ‘I had a breakdown a few years ago Lorraine, because I was going and going and going and I didn’t want to look at really what was happening. 

‘I was just trying to keep busy and not think. Learn from my mistakes and just stop for a minute.’

The Scottish journalist urged people to write down on a piece of paper one small thing that makes them happy, and then urged them to achieve it in their day. 

Andrea stepped down from Loose Women after 13 years on the show in December 2020, and later admitted that she agonised over the decision for months.
