Brave Karen Danczuk talks about horrific sexual abuse by her brother as Never Too Late To Tell campaign launches


After deciding to waive her right to anonymity, Karen bravely chose to appear on the show and talk about her experience of childhood sexual abuse by her older brother Michael Burke.

He has been convicted of a string of sex attacks against Karen and other women,
abusing his sister when she was aged between nine and 11.

'I knew it was wrong because it didn't feel right,' Karen said crying. 'I couldn't ask someone – it's not like I could tell someone at school – so I thought this was what everyone went through.'

'[I felt] numb. Normal kids would be upset if they couldn't play with a toy or something, but for me, this was life.'

When asked what she's say to her younger self, Karen said: 'I look at young Karen as a third person now, as a result of my therapy. But I'd tell her, "We did it." I wish I could give her a hug, to be honest.'

Karen says, 'People need to be told to talk and address this. People need to come out. There are probably many people watching who know what I'm talking about.' Karen is supporting our Never Too Late To Tell campaign, aimed at helping victims of abuse speak out.

Karren Brady: 'Every working mother will tell you that the very last thing on their list is themselves'


Baroness Karren Brady joined the show and had some fantastic advice for women about the importance of saying, 'No!'

'I think as you get older, you accept that you simply can't do it all. One important lesson I've learnt is to only say yes to people if I really want to,' Karren told us.

'Too often, we say yes to things and then we dread and try to think of ways to get out of it. So now, I believe in being able to just say no."

Karren added: 'Every working mother will tell you that the very last thing on their list is themselves.'

'In the end, you become so tired of being tired that you realise you have to change something. You have to be practical and realise you can do this but you can't do that. You can't say yes to everything.'

So true Karren, so true!

Coronation Street's Amanda Barrie: 'I was terrified - I would have lost my job because I was gay'


She's most famous for her role as Alma Sedgewick in Coronation Street but Amanda opened up about how terrifies she was of the press during her years on the top soap.

Amanda, 81, said the press found out about her sexuality and she was terrified that she would lose her job on Corrie.

'The trouble with me was that somebody tipped them the wink about my sexuality. From there on I was hounded.

'People got into my hotel bedroom and they followed me into places. The whole thing about it was at the time I was so terrified - at the time I would've lost my job because I was gay. Not now. I honestly believe that.'

'I felt really guilty myself because they made me felt guilty and I felt I couldn't look the audience in the eye. I'm absolutely for freedom of the press and if you're in Coronation Street fair game, but there's a certain integrity of the press.'

Amanda is now married to her long-term partner Hilary Bonner, although she admitted,
'I've never called her my wife!'

Larry Lamb on his traumatic childhood: 'I lived in a house that was like a war zone. I was so emotionally damaged'


Larry joined us to talk about his time on I'm A Celebrity and also opened up about his difficult childhood.

When asked about whether his biggest fear was repeating his parents' mistakes Larry told us, 'I lived in a house that was like a war zone. My mother and father just didn't like each other and got caught up in a marriage of convenience. It was horrible. They fought for nine years and finally split up. It really affected me and my brother and sister. We went to live with my dad and his mum. They should never have even met. You do carry it with you. And you spend the rest of your life trying to patch together that will be something better than that.'

Larry went on to add, 'I was so emotionally damaged I didn't know what I was doing. I was just trying to make a life for myself. But I just knew that what had gone on up to that point wasn't the way I wanted to live my life.'

Larry, 69, separated from Clare Burt in 2014 and has been with new parter Marie Victorine for over a year. Asked if he would marry again, Larry said: 'I have three marriages already. I think these sort of things are best discussed in private.'

And as for falling out with TV presenter Martin Roberts while in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, Larry told us, 'In terms of bad blood, there is absolutely none. Whether you like it or not you're involved in a game I think that's what I lost sight of. You can't get on with everyone.'
