Moving in the right direction

This week has been a great week for me. I chatted to comedian Paul Chowdhry for his podcast, which was good fun. When I was speaking to Paul, we were talking about how far we’ve come with mental health.

I think when I was younger, people didn’t fully understand mental health – myself included. I didn’t understand it at all when I was diagnosed with bipolar. I would never want people to feel the way I did back then.

I hope now that people are opening up more often about their struggles – it’s a sign that we have come a long way and we will continue to move in the right direction.

I’ve donated the funds from my car raffle to the Mental Health Foundation. It’s not about how it makes me feel, it’s about what I can do to help people.

The time I met Pamela Anderson

I’ve recently been watching the new Pam & Tommy series. I watched Pamela Anderson on Baywatch when I was a kid and I thought she was the most beautiful woman ever. I’ve been reminiscing about the time that I met her.

I used to get called mini Pam when I was a kid, so it meant everything to me. I thought she was amazing.

The series touches on how she was treated when her sex tape was leaked – it was absolutely disgusting.

I cried watching it because I know how she feels. I’ve been violated before and it’s the worst feeling in the world. The video was a private and intimate thing between her and her husband Tommy, and the fact it was exploited in such an awful way is vile.

Lily James has done a marvellous job playing her – she’s absolutely brilliant. I always had a crush on Tommy Lee as well. He’s a bad boy, isn’t he? I’ve always loved a rebel… but not anymore!

My heart breaks for Ukraine

I’ve been following the news, and it’s been absolutely horrendous watching the mothers and their children fleeing Ukraine. It’s heartbreaking to watch and see all these people in danger.

It breaks my heart and it scares me so much. It isn’t a war, it’s cold-blooded murder.

I haven’t explained everything to my youngest, Dylan. I really don’t want to scare my children. Heidi suffers badly with anxiety and when it’s all over the news, I don’t want them to see it. I don’t want them feeling upset.

It’s so sad thinking about the children who are living this frightening life and not knowing what’s going to happen. In this day and age, I can’t get my head around what Putin is doing to these poor people.
