Millie Mackintosh has been struggling with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) since she was 18 years old, and is often open with fans about ways to help and control the condition.
Despite her candid front, the former Made In Chelsea star, who shares two children with husband Hugo Taylor, has now opened up about the 'shame' and 'embarrassment' of talking about the battle - admitting that it isn't always easy to be so upfront. "At first it felt quite shameful to talk about some of my IBS symptoms.
I understand not wanting to talk about poo, how regular you are, what it looks like. It can be really embarrassing," explained Millie, 34, during a new interview with The Mirror.
First noticing IBS symptoms such as bloating and stomach pain while travelling in her teens, Millie has been dealing with the condition for 16 years and has got to a point where she can help and educate others.
