Laura Hamilton, 37, shared a video on Instagram where she revealed she struggled to breathe on Saturday night. The A Place In The Sun presenter admitted her husband Alex Goward called an ambulance amid the “scary” situation.
Taking to Instagram stories, Laura opened up about her health and explained the panic attack was due to “stress” after receiving hurtful comments online.
In view of her 66,000 followers, the Channel 4 presenter said: “Hi everyone. I was really unsure about posting this message but I feel the need to. Because something happened on Saturday night and it affected me quite badly.
“As you are aware, Alex and I have been absolutely busting our b**lls basically helping the community. Doing what we can to use our suppliers to get goods to the community.”
The married couple are owners of a grocery shop called Lord Roberts On The Green.

Laura explained she was made aware of “nasty” comments which had been posted online which had upset the presenter.
“We’ve worked really hard to bring our prices down and we’ve been doing that on a regular basis,” she explained further. “Anyway, I’ve been losing my voice through stress of this situation.”
She continued: “And on Saturday night there were some really, really nasty people who decided to make some really nasty comments about what we’re doing on our local neighbourly websites.
“It affected me so badly that I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t actually know what was happening to me.”
The property expert admitted to feeling like she was “drowning” and an ambulance was called by her husband Alex.
“I actually felt like I was drowning. And this is not something I’ve ever experienced in my life so I didn’t quite know what was happening.”
Laura continued: “It was so scary, that Alex ended up calling an ambulance. I’m really grateful because they came here in record time.
“I didn’t want to be doing that to be honest, given what’s going on in the world. But we had to.”
The Channel 4 favourite revealed she was informed by the ambulance medical staff she had suffered a panic attack.
Laura said: “When the ambulance turned up, it turns out that I was having a panic attack.
“It feels a bit weird due to the stigma attached around panic attacks. I’ve got this reputation of being a bit of a machine amongst my friends and battling through whatever is thrown at me. But it was just all too much.”
The mum-of-two asked fans to “be kind” to one another and to stop being “negative”.

“We are going to carry on doing what we are doing at Lord Robertson On The Green.”
She finished: “Please be kind. As I said I wasn’t going to post this because I didn’t think it was appropriate. But now I think it is appropriate.”
