Davina is celebrating 70 years of the NHS in ITV’s new documentary Live in A&E which will see Davina experiencing everything that goes on in Leeds General Infirmary. Davina will never know who, or what will come through the doors next.
But this isn’t her first time in A&E, six years ago Davina took her sister, Caroline in after suspecting she was suffering from a stroke. Caroline died seven weeks later of terminal cancer - but Davina has never forgotten the kindness that the NHS staff showed her family. The show kicks off tonight, and as she prepares for her first night, Davina joins us live from Leeds General Infirmary.
We can do this. We need to start again, inject some fun back into it. We've got to have a softer approach to it, rather than forcing it on her.

Thirty years of research has gone into developing LifeMel Honey, which is produced in Israel by bees fed on a special nectar derived from 40 therapeutic herbs, including Siberian ginseng, Echinacea, uncaria tomentosa, and natural sources of iron, protein and vitamins.
Dr Chris reveals he's been encouraging the use of this honey among patients who are having chemotherapy to treat cancer. Usually patients will notice a drop in their white blood cell count while undergoing chemotherapy, but in each of his own cases, Dr Chris has noticed that the decrease in white blood cells slows down when patients are taking the honey.
As yet there have been no large-scale clinical trials to look into the honey's effect on cancer patients.
