In the video, Cipriani said when he was 22 he was going through "severe depression", and it was at this point he said he wanted to kill himself.
Struggling to talk, the 32-year-old said: ‘Someone that I loved as a person very dearly and someone I’ve very close to has decided to take her own life, as everyone knows, and I’ve speaking to her for the past three, four months, we’ve always been in contact since we were together, since we weren’t, and it’s always been a loving friendship.
‘I was so vulnerable with her in my moments since we first met and I told her everything about me, because I felt safe with her. I told her all the things I was embarrassed and shameful about. She made me feel ok. And ultimately it was embarrassment and shame that killed her. ‘I know she knew I had the strength to do this, and we had spoken about how things had to change. I didn’t know it would take this.'
