Mary Coughlan opens up about her struggles on the Late Late Show

‘The strangest thing about the Woman’s Heart album, I was in the Rutland’s Centre and somebody phoned and asked if I would do it,’ Mary explained.

‘I thought that I would never sing again. I really wanted to give it up. Maura Russell was my therapist and she said: “We ask people not to make life-changing decisions for at least two years after they come out of here.”

‘I thought about it for a very long time and I recorded that song which went on to be the biggest selling song that I’ve ever had and the biggest digital download still.

‘We went on the road and we just had an absolute ball. I really never thought I’d sing again."
