Gail can laugh at her life now she's won a BAFTA for "being mental" (Being Gail Porter, 2020). She's been famous, homeless and sectioned with two guys both claiming to be Jesus. She's even lost her hair, but no need for sympathy, she gets so many travel upgrades as people assume she's dying. By sharing the stories of her mental life and mental mind she hopes to show how, with love and kindness, we can all thrive. She's a wee Scottish ninja back in her home town – it's time to go Gail force.
