DANIELLE LLOYD DISCUSSES WHY SHE'S CONSIDERING GENDER SELECTION TO HAVE A BABY GIRL
Danielle joined us to discuss gender selection and her plans to ensure she has a daughter after four boys.
'I do stand by my decision. I think for me it’s about family balance as well,' Danielle told Ruth, Stacey, Linda and Nadia. 'I totally understand why there’s two sides to the story. Some people don’t agree with it, some people do. I just think for me, I’ve just always wanted that little baby girl. I just want that balance, that family balance.'
'I love my boys and I’m so thankful I’ve got them and I wouldn’t change them for the world. My house is a crazy house but they even keep saying to me, "Mummy is our little baby sister in there yet?" and I’m like, "No, that’s just my food".'
Danielle has been heavily criticised for her decision to look into gender selection which is illegal in the UK.
'I understand they’ve got opinions – but why judge me?', Danielle said. 'There are people who can’t have children and I totally sympathise, I couldn’t imagine being in that situation. I’ve got four beautiful boys and I love them and I live for my kids.'
SUZANNE HILL SPEAKS OUT ABOUT HER HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Speaking for the first time about her ordeal, Suzanne revealed how lorry driver husband David Jennison beat her after a row over what she was watching on TV.
'If I can save one person by speaking out,' Suzanne told Andrea, Becky, Nadia and Stacey as she shared her experience which many people will find upsetting and distressing.
'I knew that night when he came home from work that there was something different about him. He came in and saw BGT on the telly and said, "I'm not watching that",' Suzanne .
'At 9 o'clock he went to bed, and he said something at the top of the stairs but I didn't hear and I said, "What did you say?" I decided to go to bed as well. I was giggling, we'd only been married eight months.'
But moments Suzanne suffered a brutal attack at the hands of her lorry driver husband as he headbutted, choked and battered her until she was unconscious.
'I thought he was going to give me a hug, he headbutted me and then he put his hands around my neck and he strangled, and strangled and strangled,' Suzanne said. 'I let my hands flop to my side. Just as my hearing was going, he let go of the grip, his eyes were very dark, he said, "I'm gonna kill you and then I'm gonna kill me".'
BRUNO TONIOLI TALKS BODY STORIES AND LOVE LIFE RUMOURS
Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno took part in our men's body confidence campaign, Body Stories, last year and was thrilled to talk about the infamous photoshoot.
'I never have [been shy]! I'm always naked,' Bruno revealed. 'It's very important for people to be relaxed with themselves. We all have stereotypes we try to comply with, we're all made certain ways, it's absolutely fine, let it all hang out.'
'If you look at magazines, they all look like superheros, they are bodies that are impossible to attain unless you go to the gym 25 hours a day!'
'You just have to say, "This is who I am, take it or leave it". Sometimes you have to take a bit of a risk, you have to say you're in it together, let's have a good time!'
And when we asked him about having a weekend off judging Strictly and rumours of his love life, Bruno set the record straight, saying, 'I have a night out with friends and it all becomes... we go to a restaurant and have a nice time with friends that's all there is to it.
'Me naughty? Never. I'm practically a saint.'
