Christine, who also detailed juggling raising her three autistic children with looking after her mother, who has cancer, was lauded by fans for 'bravely' appearing on the show.

One wrote: 'I really hope Christine comes out and smashes it! She deserves to make herself fell proud for doing something so brave. She should be proud regardless.'

Another added: 'Christine is such a brave inspiration I love her so much. You got this queen.'

A third added: 'I feel seen. You've been seen, Christine. We see you.'

One fan praised: 'My heart's breaking at Christine on #StrictlyTheRealFullmonty. This is me, my life. Try so hard to get over this autism and just can't. It hits so hard. As I go through my own diagnosis it's so real. Will watch her doc with @PaddyMcGuinness. I'd avoided it, but I think I need to.'

A fan also praised: 'Autism on the whole is hugely lacking representation, but to see someone who, on the surface, doesn't typically appear autistic, speak openly about their experiences, is extremely inspiring and refreshing. Thank you Christine.'
