The first few days I stayed in the same spot. I kept yelling for help - 'please help me, I'm naked, I don't have a phone'
Battered, bruised, confused and malnourished. That was Lisa Theris after 28 days in the Alabama woods. The 25-year-old radiology student went missing in July and was soon presumed dead by her friends and family until she was found on the motorway in mid-August.
I remember waking up naked in the woods and not knowing how I got there
Lisa joins us today from Alabama, ready to discuss her harrowing experience, and how it felt to be found after 28 days.
When Serin Rayer-Davies turned 21, her obsessive compulsive disorder was so out of control she struggled to leave the house and even contemplated ending her own life.
Having extreme OCD left Serin unable to cope with the thought of being contaminated by germs and in a bid to stay ‘clean’, she would wash her hair up to 72 times a day and rewash the same laundry load up to 15 times.
Having undergone therapy, Serin has now turned her life around and even met the man of her dreams. But now she’s letting her husband into her clean space, she’s facing the possibility of a devastating relapse.
Serin and her father Deny join us now to talk about her debilitating disorder.
The Chase is on for Bradley Walsh, as according to reports, he's set to become the Time Lady's first companion when Doctor Who returns to our screens in 2019.
Jodie Whitaker became the first female Doctor, making her debut this Christmas, but could Bradley Walsh be following her into the TARDIS?
As source told The Mirror, 'Bradley is super excited to be joining the cast of Doctor Who in such a key role. 'It means that his schedule over the coming months will be jam-packed - but crucially, it won't affect his role as presenter of The Chase. He loves that show with a passion and so does the audience, so he's delighted to have found a way to make it all work'.
But what do you think? Would Bradley make the perfect companion? Let us know in our poll below!
Viewers of the final of Channel 4’s Child Genius could’ve been forgiven for mistaking IT Manager, Minesh Doshi, as the winner of the show - instead of his 12-year-old son Rahul. The pushy parent sparked outrage on social media with his exuberant celebrations and obvious glee when his son’s competitor got a question wrong.
Today, we’re joined by self-confessed pushy mum Rosie Millard, who is currently half way up the french alps on a hiking holiday that she forced her children to go on. She believes all parents should push their children to succeed because they will thank them for it in the end.
We’re also joined in the studio by fellow pushy parent Sally Jones, who dragged her children out of bed to play in tennis tournaments, practice piano and take part in mastermind, and mother-of-four Clare Muldoon who 'abhors' pushy parents, claiming they epitomise everything that's wrong with the 'school gate' culture. But what do you think?
Since we talked about whether or not we should be be banned from taking nuts on to flights, the debate over whether all airlines should enforce the ban has continued.
Today we're welcoming back Amy May Shead, a loved member of the This Morning team, who continues to live with the devastating effects caused by a severe allergic reaction to nuts.
Counter Terrorism police, in association with the Foreign Office and ABTA, have launched a new four-minute film outlining what to do if you're caught up in an attack abroad.
The key advice is:
RUN: to a place of safety. This is better than trying to surrender or negotiate.
HIDE: it is better to hide than confront. Barricade yourself in, turn your phone to silent and use only when it is safe to do so.
TELL: Make sure you know the local emergency numbers in the country you’re travelling to. For all EU counties it’s 112.
He's never going to lead an independent life, he'll always be dependent on me, but we'll work it out and get along
They say looks can be deceiving, and that is definitely the case when it comes to Angus Palmes. Born in 2004, Angus is 13 years old but at just one meter tall and weighing 2st 2Ibs he is often mistaken for a toddler.
Due to a unique chromosome abnormality Angus stopped growing when he was just three years old. As well as being unable to walk or talk, Angus has severe gastric problems and has endured more than 40 operations in his short life. But despite all this, the pint sized warrior has amazed doctors and his loved ones with his gigantic personality, enormous bravery and truly inspiring positive outlook.
Angus joins us now alongside his mum Tandy, as she tells us why her son is one of the most special people on the planet.
