A Night In with Nicky Campbell
As co-presenter of ITV’s Long Lost Family, reuniting parents with children, and as an adopted child himself, Nicky Campbell knows all too well the tangled emotions and inner conflicts that go with being given up by your birth mother. It has taken a lifetime – and a special dog – to come to terms with abandonment and the feeling of being an imposter in his own life.
Join Nicky to celebrate the publication of his new book One of the Family, a brave and moving memoir which reveals how the unconditional love and friendship of Maxwell, his Labrador, turned Nicky’s life around and helped him come to terms with the difficulties of being an adopted child.
In this intimate and soul searching event, Nicky will open up about how being adopted has made him always feel like an outsider; the guilt he has carried towards his Mum and Dad for needing to trace his birth mother, and the crushing disappointment he felt when he finally met her. And, for the first time, he talks about his emotional breakdown and how he has learned to live with a late diagnosis of bipolar.
