Gail Porter reveals dad Bill has died after her mental health documentary aired again – The Sun

GAIL Porter has revealed her dad has died after she made a documentary about her mental health.

The 49-year-old tweeted yesterday to say dad Bill had passed away after the BBC documentary was aired again last night.

Gail wrote: "Since that documentary, my father passed away, I had him in his wee cremated box by me while I watched. Hard but he had a great life xxx."

The presenter did not give any further details about the tragedy but told worried fans she was feeling "totally fine" but appreciated their kind words.

She added: "Thank you for always tweeting and being lovely. Kindness is all we need."

Documentary Being Gail Porter explored the star's spiral into depression and homelessness and first aired in January.

The troubled former TV host — who in the Nineties presented hit shows such as Top Of The Pops and Fully Booked — was declared bankrupt in 2017 after living on just £200 a month.

Her dad helped her get back on her feet by paying her rent in a one-bedroom flat.

He previously told her he believed she developed mental health problems because she moved to London from Scotland.

Gail has suffered post-natal depression and bipolar disorder and was sectioned under the Mental Health Act in 2011.
