She also launched a furious attack on her husband, who she allegedly accused of being secretly addicted to pornography.
A source told the Sun she 'was struggling with the death of a parent. They found it really hard and battled with their grief.'
The soap star posted: 'It breaks my heart so much. No mother deserves this punishment.
'I've messed up I admit but I don't deserve to lose [them]. I hope your [sic] happy. I hate your guts.'
She did not elaborate on how she had 'messed up' in her personal life, but said she was 'heartbroken' at being separated from her children.
When a friend commented in support, she reportedly replied: 'Thanks darlin. I'm heartbroken. How sad I met a guy who looked at this stuff all our married life. You knock me sick.'
She did not go on to explain how she had 'messed up'.
