I'm getting drunk!

Confession time

It's confession time on Wednesday's This Morning, as Denise Robertson offers advice on the things you're keeping quiet. Have you got a secret you need to get off your chest? Is someone YOU know playing away and you don't know what to do - or maybe you're covering up a mistake you've made at work?

Perhaps it's not as serious as all that. Maybe you've ruined a dress your friend leant you, or you're feeling guilty about a prank you've played on someone. Whatever it is, email with your phone number by 11am on Wednesday 30th July for a chance to speak to Denise live on air. You must be 18 or over. Full terms and conditions at

The Great Dane on wheels

Gemma McKee was a professional dancer and stunt performer but two years ago her career was ruined in under a minute. During a synchronised dive routine she smashed both of her heels in half and was told she would never walk again.

With the help of her great dane Cesar she gradually got back on her feet but at the beginning of this year she was left heartbroken when Cesar suffered a back injury, leaving him unable to use his rear legs. Determined to help him like he helped her Cesar is now back on his feet with the help of a specialised cart. Gemma and Cesar are both here today.

The wrong crowd

Karen Atkinson was just 11 years old when she tried her first cigarette - succumbing to peer pressure for fear of looking un-cool. However, one puff soon turned into many, and age 13 she was trying cocaine and ecstasy, becoming addicted age 15.

It wasn't until she witnessed an overdose, that she decided to turn her life around. Today, she's joined by her mum Linda who both believe parents need to be more aware about the initial signs of drug abuse, and that both communication and education is an absolute must to keep children safe.
