The star's breakdown was precipitated by a prolonged loss of power to her home, combined with an inability to get hold of her necessary medication.

It was then that Wallace went to the hospital seeking help for her mental well-being.

When asked if hospital staff had 'turfed you out', the English-born Australian actress claimed they had.

'They were very busy with people the hospital could do something about, but they couldn't really do anything about me,' she said.

'Except send me home, which they did.'
