Mick is joined by actor and writer Natasha Rea, ahead of taking her "A Night With Me, Myself and Bipolar Brenda" performance to the Edinburgh Fringe.

Natasha explores her bipolar journey, and how late diagnosis made her think back to earlier moments in her life when it may have been a factor.

She explores her school days, the pressures of performing, and how she creates characters to help he son understand how she's feeling on any given day.
