A mum at just 12 years old

I just hope that she doesn't blame me

– Tressa Middleton talks about her daughter

Born into extreme poverty in Broxburn, Scotland, Tressa Middleton, now 21, was in care from a young age. Reunited with her mother and family, she watched as alcohol and drugs tore apart their family.

And from tragic beginnings came yet more misery. Raped by her older brother Jason, Tressa gave birth to a child at the tender age of just 12.

After eventually giving her child up for adoption, Tressa is now finally coping with her demons, and has detailed her struggle in a new book.

'I've got size 18 jeans on and I feel a million dollars'

My whole life has revolved around food for the past 15 years

– Gemma Collins

Today Gemma Collins explained to Phillip and Amanda how hypnosis has helped her shed three stone in three months.Gemma said, “Life always revolved around food and eating - before I’d leave the house, I’d be like ‘where am I having lunch, where am I having dinner?’ there was no brain space in my head that didn’t allow me not to think about food. It was a living nightmare.”

For the first time, the next day, I woke up, and I believe I got my life back, and I got me back

– Gemma Collins, after meeting her hypnotherapist

After her hypnosis session, Gemma reveals she felt different, “At the end of the process - I don’t know what he did, I was wide awake when it was happening - and at the end of it he said, ‘I want you to go back to that girl, and if you were to see that girl again, what would you say to her?’... And I shut my eyes and I said ‘I’m really sorry, but I can’t see this girl anymore. She’s gone’."

She continued: "But for the first time, the next day I woke up and I believe I got my life back and I got me back.”

Gemma told us that her appetite has dropped dramatically since hypnosis, and her waistline has matched that, losing three stone in as many months.

The Right Diet for You: 5:2

It's one of our biggest experiments to date. Eight viewers tried four diets over six long months - and here are the results.

Airline check-in assistant Christine, 44, and VIP airline lounge hostess Caroline, 45, have been pals for over 25 years. Both live in Middlesex with their families. In their own words, they’ve 'been fat, and thin together'.

Both ladies enjoy a celebration with the girls and food plays a big part. Caroline’s vice is a curry take away with a glass of wine, and Christine finds it hard to resist the nibbles especially if she has a glass of wine.

Dr Dawn believes finding a diet to suit their lifestyle is key if they are to succeed. After hearing about their daily calorie intake Dr Dawn puts them on a 5:2 fasting-style diet.
