It's been a mental week for Josie


Josie Gibson‘s been reflecting on her past.

‘This week’s been one of the most mental ones of my life and that’s saying something,’ Josie, 27, tells us.

‘I’ve had a massively trying time with my family as some old faces have come charging back into our lives.

‘In particular I’ve been working my arse off to help and support my little brothers Josh and Charlie, who’ve both been a bit upset by it all.

‘This week’s forced us to think a lot about family values and reflect on what life was like for us when we were kids.

‘And that’s raked up a whole load of old memories for me, I’ll tell you.

‘So many people think of me as the ditzy blonde Bristolian who’s always good for a laugh, but if you could see what my life was like 10 years ago, you wouldn’t recognise it or me – and that’s not just because of the dodgy hair and bubble fringe.

‘I’ve spent all week looking at how far I’ve come and the changes I’ve made.’
