Davina McCall’s Alzheimer’s terror
DAVINA MCCALL has opened up about her terror of developing Alzheimer’s like her dad and granny.
Speaking to Good Housekeeping magazine, the popular presenter admitted she’s been so scared she’s even sought medical advice.
‘I have called my doctor twice in floods of tears saying, “I’ve definitely got it,”‘ she said.
‘She told me, “If you had Alzheimer’s you wouldn’t be calling me about it!”‘
But Davina seems to have got her anxiety under control now and reckons: ‘I’m only forgetful because my inbox is full and I have cognitive overload.’
Plus she’s feeling positive since kicking her drug habit.
‘I don’t drink, don’t smoke and I’m in good health. If I get ill, I get ill — it’s a lottery.’
Sounding philosophical, Davina added: ‘None of us knows what’s going to happen around the corner. You just have to enjoy life.’
