ADRIAN DERBYSHIRE TALKS ABOUT THE TRAGIC DEATH OF HIS 16-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER JULIA AFTER ONLINE BULLYING
WARNING: THE VIDEO CONTAINS IMAGES OF JULIA ON LIFE-SUPPORT SHORTLY BEFORE SHE DIED THAT SOME MAY FIND UPSETTING
Talking openly about losing his teenage daughter Julia to suicide, Adrian discussed his anti-bullying campaign and allowed us to show the pictures of Julia moments before her life-support machine was turned off and she died in 2015.
'I wanted to shock people so they would talk about the issues of bullying and mental health,' Adrian told us. 'Bullying creates mental health issues. No one wants to see their daughter and pictures like that but I felt it was needed so children could see the affect [bullying] can have.'
'There was physical and mental abuse, 24 hours a day. She started self-harming,' Adrian explained.
Asked whether he could ever forgive the bullies behind the campaign of abuse that led to his daughter's death, Adrian had an inspirational message to share.
'I’m not a name and shame kind of person… You can’t end hate by hating others yourself,' Adrian told us.
'That’s what this campaign is about… offering unconditional love and support.'

DAVID BADDIEL ON FINDING HUMOUR IN FAMILY HEARTACHE
Comedian David had us in fits of laughter when he came face to face with our Janet - and shared some personal stories about his family life which feature in his new comedy show My Family: Not The Sitcom.
'The show is about my mum and her generally mad behaviour and about my dad, who is still alive and the fact he has dementia. People has started telling me their family secrets and about relatives who have dementia,' David said.
And David is keen for people to find funny in what can be a dark and upsetting time.
'Ruth [Langsford] told me a story about her dad [who was being assessed for dementia]. The first question was who's the prime minister. And he said, 'Blair'. But then said, 'Lionel'. Brilliant isn't it,' David said.
Prime Minister Theresa May has signed the letter that will officially trigger Article 50 and begin the Brexit process...
TV COOK LORRAINE PASCALE TALKS ABOUT BEING ADOPTED AND FOSTERED AS A CHILD
She's sold over a million cooking books and is a baking goddess.
And while we love her for her cakes and buns, TV cook Lorraine is also passionate about promoting fostering as a UK government fostering ambassador.
Lorraine was fostered by several different families up until she was 18-months, before being adopted by a family from Oxfordshire.
Her adoptive parents divorced when Lorraine was three-years-old and she ended up back in foster care when she was eight for just under a year, before returning to her adoptive mother.
Lorraine has since met her birth parents and says, 'I've connected with my real parents and it was like meeting with someone at a bus stop. I called the adoption hotline before I went and they said that it's very normal not to have a connection because you basically are two strangers.'
RUTH LANGSFORD'S SOCIAL MEDIA FAIL AS FANS SEE SAUCY PHOTOS ON HER PHONE!
Social media can be a minefield - and our Ruth found out the hard way when some saucy photos sent by a girlfriend for a joke saved to her phone and were accidentally posted on Twitter with her Mother's Day tribute.
'The picture on the left is my mummy, my niece sent them to me on Whatsapp,' Ruth explained on the show as the image flashed up behind the panel.
'I was trying to find one on the camera, I zoomed and screenshotted. What I didn’t know is when people send you racy pictures that go round, that are very amusing… I didn’t realise they get saved to your camera roll. I look at them, hilarious, then forget it.
'I posted that picture, thought, lovely.'
DARIUS CAMPBELL ON HIS 'BITTERSWEET' DIVORCE
He shot to fame as Darius Danesh on Popstars and Pop Idol back in the 1990s, but swapped being a pop star for a theatre actor and won rave reviews in Funny Girl in the West End with Sheridan Smith.
And Darius has also been making headlines with his love life. After marrying Canadian actress Natasha Henstridge in 2011 the pair filed for divorce in July 2013. But were spotted kissing over dinner in August 2016.
So, we asked him exactly what's going on!
'In the most bittersweet and wonderful way, we’re dear friends,' Darius explained. 'We filed for divorce three years ago.
'I really meant what I said. When you stand up in front on somebody and say, "I’m going to give you my life" you mean it. And if you don’t you shouldn’t be in it.'
COLEEN NOLAN ON SISTER LINDA'S CANCER: 'SHE'S NOT DYING FROM CANCER, SHE'S LIVING WITH IT'
Returning to the show today, brave Coleen spoke of her sister Linda’s recent heartbreaking cancer diagnosis.
'It’s difficult to know where to start. About two and a half weeks ago, my sister Linda had an accident at home. She actually broke her hip so went to hospital and while they did the scan of her hip, they found secondary cancer,' Coleen explained on the show.
Linda had been clear of cancer from breast cancer for six years.
'They found a cyst attached to where the break was - her pelvic bone. So it was just earth shattering for us initially. She’s incredible and what they have said is – and the reason I didn’t come back – she didn’t want anyone to know at the time. She didn’t want it to be out there at the time. We all had to get our head around it. She wanted me to come back now, she had enough sitting around – get back to work. She’s not ready to talk about it yet.'
