A decade later Ruby hosted her show Ruby Wax Meets… and interviewed celebs such as Pamela Anderson and Madonna.
Ruby later featured within the Absolutely Fabulous series that was directed by her husband, Ed Bye.
Ruby has been open on the topic of her own mental health and during a 2017 interview spoke candidly of it.
She spoke of how he chose to keep her struggle from her three children Marina, Max and Madeline who she shares with husband Ed.
Ruby told The Guardian: “The kids didn’t know I had depression until they were older.
“Ed covered for me and told them I was away making a documentary or if I was home, that I had the flu, but when Max was about 16, we shared it with them.
“We introduced them to other people with depression, and that made it less scary.
“My children have all been there for me and are very nurturing and rally round and understand.

“We don’t know if mental health is nature or nurture and I did worry about that and whether I had passed the baton on.
“Depression kicks in early but it didn’t for any of them. I look at them now and think ‘I got lucky.'”
Back in 2011 Ruby admitted she was open to having “non-invasive surgery”.
She explained: “I am all for non-invasive surgery.
“It’s not for everyone, but it’s my personal choice to have Botox injections.
“I have them once a year, which is enough for me. It means that I still have expression in my face.
“The only reason I choose to have it is because I have a career that depends on my face.
“If it wasn’t for that, I probably wouldn’t bother with it so regularly.”
Sunday Brunch airs today on Channel 4 at 9.30 am.
