The mum-of-three told them: "When I met my husband that was a time I felt very safe and I wonder if that's why I stayed in the relationship for 15 years.
"We are separated now – but I stayed for 15 years, I know being a single woman is an extremely vulnerable place to be and it petrified me, and that's life sorry I don't want to get upset."
One member of the members then asked her: "Sorry you feel more able to have left after your diagnosis?"
She answered: "Yeah because I know because I've stayed in a place I was probably unhappy because it was safe and I don't like change – and ultimately I wanted to keep my family together."
Christine then teared up and spun around away from the group to hide from the camera.
BBC viewers took to social media to share their thoughts on the documentary.
