Former boxing promoter Kellie Maloney has revealed she attempted suicide after falling in with the wrong crowd and missed her previous life as Frank.

The transgender star said she was mixing with the wrong friends which lead to doubts over her transition.

The 66-year-old slipped into depression and loneliness and was rushed to hospital after taking a cocktail of painkillers and alcohol at her villa in Portugal, according to the Sun.

Now the former Celebrity Big Brother star says she does not regret undergoing gender reassignment surgery but fell into a dark place and began having doubts.

She said she missed her old glamorous life as a boxing promoter, which in her hayday saw her manage world undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis from 1989 until the fighter retired in 2003.

Since announcing her gender reassignment plans in 2014, Ms Maloney has had to distance herself from the sport after some mocked her decision.
