Rita Simons on living with OCD: 'I thought everyone's going to die'

Lorraine's Shine A Light campaign, which aims to educate and cast a spotlight on misunderstood mental health conditions, continues today with former EastEnders star Rita Simons.

Rita talks in-depth for the first time about her childhood diagnosis of obsessive compulsive disorder. She's been living with the condition for 20 years and meets other young women with OCD in order to highlight the different ways symptoms can present themselves.
