Ellie says it’s a horrible thing to experience: ”There were times when I felt like I was having a heart attack. There was too much adrenaline and my heart was pounding. It’s just such a horrible, horrible thing to go through. I hadn’t even released my first proper single when I started to feel the strain of attention. But I don’t believe that it was the attention that was giving me panic attacks. I think it was everything in my life colliding at the same time. It really did get to a serious point where I couldn’t even walk down the street without getting the pain. I’d have a numb arm, a very strange lump in my throat and a really hot chest, like my heart was on fire. I had to take Diazepam but I found it debilitating.”
