Comedian Freddie Starr died aged 76 after suffering a heart attack at his home in Spain last year. Sophie Lea, now 39, became Freddie’s fifth wife in 2013.
A year on from his death, Sophie has reflected on alleged abuse she suffered from the star in their marriage.
She had previously said their marriage hit the rocks after his arrest on suspicion of historical child sex attacks.
He was never charged with any offences by the CPS due to a lack of evidence.
Sophie said she suffered years of abuse from Freddie and tried to take her own life.

She has now said she doesn’t herself as a domestic abuse victim and has claimed her fear of Freddie has now gone.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “Regardless of what happened, the anger has gone and there is forgiveness.
“A lot of that fear, of how it was with Freddie, has passed now. I think I’m over what happened in our relationship.
“I do forgive him, definitely. The anger has gone, I’ve got myself to the point where I can forgive what happened and move on
