A former star of Hollyoaks, is backing a call for a ban on sunbeds in the UK. Actress and TV presenter, Terri Dwyer battled skin cancer in 2014 and is convinced her melanoma was as a result of using a sunbed at home for at least a year. She wants the UK to follow in the footsteps of Australia, where commercial sunbeds (solariums) are banned.

The Sunbed Association say that there are plenty of regulations to keep users safe and people should tan responsibly and in moderation.
