EastEnders Natalie Cassidy slams her own reality show saying it ‘was a nightmare’ and she ‘needed the money’ | The Sun

EASTENDERS star Natalie Cassidy slammed her own reality show saying it ‘was a nightmare’ and she ‘needed the money'.

The actress is considered a soap legend as she's played nurse Sonia Fowler in the BBC show since 1993.


But there was a time when Natalie took a break from EastEnders to do a reality show on E4 about being a mum.

The 39-year-old has opened up about how much she didn't enjoy it on the Comfort Eating with Grace Dent podcast.

Sonia said: "It was all a mistake, because I was so unhappy. It wasn't a nice time. Eliza's father… well, yeah, we'll call him that.

"He just wasn't very kind to me. I've got Eliza so it doesn't matter, but it was bad, bad times.

"I needed the money. But you look at that and go, 'What were you doing?' Because he wasn't very kind.

"We'd be arguing and then the cameras would be coming around and you'd be all on edge thinking, 'Oh, he's got to be alright now.'

"It was a nightmare. I've never watched it. It was stressful, but it was my fault. I dug myself into it."
