Fans watched her speak about her condition with former EastEnders actress Rita Simons.
“I didn’t raise the autism issue. It’s not like: ‘I want you to know I have this interesting disability that you have to accommodate’,” Anne explained.
“If someone else raises it then I make it quite clear that I’m happy to talk about it.”
Anne – best known for her role on The Chase as The Governess – revealed she didn’t get diagnosed until she was 45 in 2003.
Accordingto the NHS, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the name for a range of similar conditions, including Asperger syndrome, that affect a person’s social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour.
