She tells of horror at finding unconscious mother

Charlotte Church admits she was furious with her mother after she apparently tried to take her own life.

Maria, who took a mixture of sleeping pills and paracetamol after finding out about her husband’s affair with a family friend in November 2005, was found by her daughter.

She was admitted to Llandough Hospital in Cardiff for emergency treatment.

‘It was a tough time. I was angry because I thought she’d tried to kill herself,’ pregnant Chaz, 21, admits.

‘But she said all she had wanted to do was sleep for a few days to forget about what had happened.’

And the singer blames the other woman.

‘If I saw her today, I’d poke her eyes out,’ she reveals, ‘because she was the cause of so much pain.’
