Her battle with anxiety has risen in tandem with her time on the Real Housewives and she previously admitted the filming the explosive reunion episode each series can be the "worst day" on set.
Speaking previously about leaving, Tanya told the Daily Star: "I'd just been diagnosed with ADHD and had the seizure.
"The doctors said I couldn't have any stress and then I left the Housewives and got rid of the shop.
"I just went back to basics, I had a breakdown and sort of breaking free now, I might eventually get another shop back, it is in some stores and it's online but that has a lot of people to look after it."
"I was in a bad way, a really bad way.
"Part of ADHD, I was always taking on more stuff and with the Housewives, I have enough arguments in my own head so I don't have any space to have any other arguments with other people."
