Gail Porter - Scottish Star Gail Porter Sectioned

Scottish TV presenter Gail Porter has been sectioned under Britain's Mental Health Act after cops were called to her home.
The host, who was previously married to Toploader guitarist Dan Hipgrave, was reportedly discovered locked in the bathroom of her London house with cuts on her arms and chest.
Porter, who suffers from alopecia, was taken to a medical facility on Wednesday (18May11) and was kept overnight, before being discharged on Thursday (19May11).
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson tells Britain's The Sun, "Police were called to an address in Belsize Park at approximately 21.00 hours on Wednesday following concerns for the welfare of a resident. A woman was detained under the Mental Health Act and taken to a medical facility."
A source adds, "Gail has gone completely off the rails. It's very sad, but she needs to be in rehab."
Porter, who has previously battled substance abuse issues and depression, told the publication at her home, "I'm fine, thank you very much."

Poor woman, I like Gail Porter but what could have driven her to want to leave her child behind? I have an illness that went undiagnosed for nearly 40 years, and the symptons I had did not fit into any catagory, this lady has an illness, hair loss and being in the public eye does not help her cause. My life has been ruined by ending up with a mental health record, I don t deserve. I hope that gail Porter, does not end up the same, because no one understands her illness. Get well, and look after that child of yours, she/he needs their mum.
