OCD-UK Welcome New Patron

Ian Puleston-Davies on the Corrie set

During our annual conference in Cambridge during December, we heard about the OCD experiences of the writer and actor Ian Puleston-Davies, who later admitted that standing on stage on Saturday was far more nerve wracking than his forthcoming live episode of Coronation Street, which aired in December.

Ian spoke very candidly about his own experiences of OCD, which still plague him today, and how they partly inspired him to co-write the comedy drama about a character with OCD, Dirty, Filthy, Love which was shown on ITV in 2005.
