Speaking to The Sun, the star told how she has since learned to 'roll with the punches'.

Asked what the last two years have taught her, Jenna said: 'To roll with the punches. We've all learnt how ­unpredictable life can be — there's no point getting too stressed out about it.

'You have to know how to adapt. The last two years have been a real baptism of fire in that respect. You can't hold on. Be prepared to embrace the change.'

Jenna said going into 2022, her main resolution is to focus on one thing at a time. 

She said: 'I read this phenomenal book recently, Ikigai: The Japanese Secret To A Long And Happy Life. The message is that it's not actually that healthy or good for you to multi-task. You're better off focusing on one thing at a time.' 

The actress said she deals with stress by taking hot-cold showers in the morning, which entails a regular shower followed by blasting yourself with freezing water at the end.

Jenna recently prompted speculation of a possible reconciliation with Tom Hughes after she was spotted leaving his house. 

She and the actor, 36, began dating while playing the lead roles of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in the ITV period drama Victoria.

But it was reported last year that the couple had called it quits after the relationship had 'run its course'.

Jenna left Tom's £1.75million townhouse and in July 2020 was pictured moving into a new home.

However, photographs in October led to rumours that there has been a reunion, after they showed Jenna leaving Tom's Islington home. 

Locals said that Jenna's car had been parked outside for weeks and has a local permit.

They added that the actress – who recently sold her two-bedroom house in Stoke Newington, north London, for £1million – had been coming and going from Tom's property frequently.

And images that Jenna has shared on Instagram match interior shots of Tom's four-bedroom home, which he put on the market earlier this year before removing it.
