Charlotte's in Malawi to Tackle Hunger Together

As part of ITV’s Tackle Hunger together campaign Charlotte Hawkins is reporting from the region of Chikwawa talking to the families affected, finding out about the Work of the UN World Food programme and is helping to finish off a school canteen which will help feed preschool children what will probably be their one proper meal of the day.

Five-year-old Shania is one of them. Her parents are subsistence farmers. Over half of people in Malawi are farmers, who rely on their small plot of land (similar to the size of a British allotment) to feed their children and sell any leftovers at market. The floods swept all their crops away, and now the hot weather is not helping with planting new ones. They are struggling to feed their four children.

Shania has recently started going to the Nsekera nursery school and is receiving breakfast porridge every day. Her mum says she’s noticed a big difference in her, with Shania more alert and also taller and healthier. She will be one of the nursery children who will benefit from the new kitchen and feeding shelter that Charlotte is helping to finish this week.

Michelle Mone: OCD and me

She's one of the UK's most successful business leaders, but for years Michelle Mone has been battling OCD.

NICE believe that 750,000 equalling 1.2 percent of the UK population suffer from the mental health condition, characterised by obsessive thoughts that are only relieved by compulsive repetitive rituals including washing, cleaning and checking.

Michelle used to tidy her staff's desks when they weren't around and still now insists that there's never any handwriting on A4 files as it "looks disgusting". She is equally as obsessive at home.

Other famous faces who have admitted to OCD include David Beckham, Rafael Nadal, and Coronation Street's Ian Pulston-Davies and Kate Ford.

I really enjoy doing something positive now, because that's all part of my healing, and I cling onto that very strongly
