I had travelled to Wales to see in the new millennium with a friend I used to work with. She had moved home to open a pub with her cousin Richard, who I’d just met for the first time. He was friendly and rather good-looking, but I wasn’t looking for love. I had just come out of a b

She was quoted in this weekend's Sunday Mirror #speakingup #jeremykyle --- A woman has spoken openly for the first time about how she ended up in hospital the day she appeared on the Jeremy Kyle Show.
