Following the scandal over her tweets, Godley was immediately dropped from the Scottish Government’s health campaign.
For someone who had been invited on stage with former FM Alex Salmond and admired by Nicola Sturgeon, whom she had imitated in a series of comic voiceovers during Covid, this hit hard.
“It was definitely political,” she said.
“There were people ready to catch me. They tried. Cancer too, and guess what? I’m still here.”
Godley insists she was not “cancelled” and the only other business lost was a pantomime in Aberdeen, which she would not have been able to do after her cancer diagnosis.
She continued her tour but was exhausted by the noise on social media.
“It made me suicidal,” she says.
“I was ready to end it all because I felt like I had let so many people down.
“But every night I went on stage, the whole theater was on their feet cheering me on and I thought these people wanted me to keep doing this,” she says.
