Gail Porter recovering after trying to take her own life

Friday May 20, 2011

TV presenter Gail Porter is recovering at home after she apparently tried to take her own life.

The Scottish star was reportedly detained under the mental health act on Wednesday night and taken to hospital after being found with cuts to her arms in her bathroom.

Gail was reportedly discharged on Thursday. She was spotted back at her Belsize Park home with her boyfriend Johnny Davies.

She told the Sun newspaper: "I'm fine, thank you very much."

The 40-year-old's eight-year-old daughter Honey is staying with her father Dan Hipgrave while Gail recovers.

She has had a difficult month - there were reports she had made threats to take her life a few weeks ago after arguing with Johnny.
