Emily told Emma Barnett on BBC Radio 5 Live that she feels lonely and that the current situation with the coronavirus outbreak is “bleak and miserable and awful”.
The actress said: “I think at times like this you’ve got to appreciate everything you have, but you know, I’d give anything to have a row with a husband right now.”
Emily added that she finds it depressing seeing all the social media videos of families passing the time in isolation by having fun together.
She admitted: “With everything that's happened, it puts you in a different headspace with it all.
“One second I’m flying the flag for single women and everything’s great … and the next minute all this is happening and I want anything but to be on my own.”
The comedian says she realises there are many people much worse off than her, and is trying to stay positive.
Emily said: “Watching the news is just absolutely heartbreaking … so every day my main thing to do is just to look at what I have in my life and the people I have in my life.”
I think at times like this you’ve got to appreciate everything you have, but you know, I’d give anything to have a row with a husband right now.
Despite missing company, she told BBC that she wants to maintain her independence in her dating life.
She said: “When I go into my next relationship I want to know that I can rely on my own happiness and not have to rely on a man.”
Encouraging others who may be finding living on their own difficult right now, she says: “I’m just trying to use it all as another way of showing myself that I can cope and that I am capable and I am brave and strong.”
