Coronation Street’s Samia Longchambon studies CBT as she talks anxiety 'trigger'

Samia Longchambon is one of Britain’s longest-serving soap stars, yet the actress admits that despite her job, she hates being the centre of attention and suffers with anxiety.

In an exclusive interview with OK!, the Coronation Street star, 39, known for playing Maria Sutherland, revealed that she studied for a diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) last year after having some CBT therapy herself.

"I had some CBT myself," she candidly admits. "I was with a therapist for a few months be

'Ekin-Su has turned it around and will win with Davide,' says Michelle Heaton

Michelle Heaton is backing Love Island's Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti to take the grand prize this year, believing that the two have an undeniable connection and the Turkish bombshell really has "turned it around" despite her rocky start.

Amber Gill says 'it's OK to be different' after addressing sexuality

Former Love Island winner Amber Gill has opened up to say "it's OK to be different" after addressing her sexuality in a tweet sent earlier this week.

Now, catching up with OK! in an exclusive chat, 24 year old Amber said that if she had the opportunity to go back in time and give her 16-year-old self any advice, she'd tell her: "It’s OK to be a little bit different and crazy. You’ll be fine."

Exam season is officially upon us – here's what you need to know about academic burnout (and how to avoid it)

According to government statistics, last year 1.2 million students took their GCSEs and A Levels, and 2.75 million students are currently at university, the majority for whom it will be peak exam and assignment season.

While I'm not out of the education system just yet, I am through the years of never-ending revision sessions where your brain i

The four values of Valentine's Day to apply all year round

Valentine’s Day wasn’t even on my mind until I got an email from a card company asking if I would rather not receive Valentine’s Day related emails this year. Firstly, bold of them to assume my single status (which they are completely right about), but secondly it made me consider whether us single pringles should be able to face up to Valentine’s Day, and if we should be excluded or exclude ourselves from a day meant for love?

Valentine’s Day is hugely commercialised, probably more so than any
