Following the critically acclaimed and highly emotive Me and My, a second series of three uniquely frank films based around eminently relatable, human stories. In this new series, we hear from both celebrities and everyday people alike, as each film tackles fresh subject matter - difficult, but resonant to us all.
Me and My Mental Illness
Tells the story of how it feels to wage a daily battle with your own mind, featuring the brave stories of people living with schizo-affective disorder, bi-polar disorder, OCD, suicidal thoughts, crippling depression and Borderline Personality Disorder.
Me and My Alcoholism
Tells the frank story of 8 people - both celebrities and civilians - and their tempestuous relationship with alcohol: from their first drink, their love affair with booze and their despair as they hit rock bottom, to what it took to get sober and build a new life in recovery.
Me and My Addiction
Our cast share their stories of falling prey to other addictive drugs - for many of them, their stories reveal how a seemingly harmless recreational habit became something darker, almost without them noticing, until it was too late. For others, legal highs and prescription drugs took them down a path they could never have anticipated - with a horrifying realization that medical resources weren't set up to help them.
The series is as much about the struggle as it is hope, it will take us into the heart of society's most prevalent but misunderstood afflictions. How for many of us day to day life can become overwhelming and how celebrity culture can fuel addiction.
Me and My Addiction UK Premiere: Wednesday 25th April 2018 at 9pm on Channel 5
