Colostomy bag hasn't stopped bodybuilding dream

In 2003, aspiring fitness model Blake Beckford was training for a bodybuilding competition when he was diagnosed with a chronic bowel condition.

For ten years Blake battled the painful disease, which left him needing the toilet up to 20 times a day. By October last year, his health had deteriorated so much, that he needed surgery to remove his bowel. Blake was fitted with a colostomy bag and warned not to train, but so determined was he to realise his dream of modelling, that he ignored doctors advice and went back to the gym.

Now a personal trainer, he's just modelled for Men's Fitness, with his bag proudly on show! Blake joins us today to prove that having a bag doesn't change who you are.

Forensic psychologist Dr Keri Nixon and agony aunt Denise Robertson take viewers' calls.

Unfortunately his uncontrolled spending has led to spiralling debt and it has put on strain on his relationship with wife, Karen.

Dene and Karen are here to talk about Dene's addiction and how it might stem from his success with '80s band, Black Lace.
