welcome to this week’s chat…

If you’ve ever been on a diet – and, let’s face it, who hasn’t? – you’ll know it’s as hard to change your mindset as your body. This week, Michaela is super-honest about her reasons for piling on the pounds and what it took to shift them (p24). Maybe you can relate? Debbie is also speaking from the heart about her late partner Tony. She shares a very touching tribute to the man she loved and the unusual way she’ll honour her soulmate’s legacy (p10).

a danger to all women

Sarah-Jane Davidson, 39, Dundee Carrying in the cage, I placed it gently on the hallway table as my son’s and daughter’s faces lit up. ‘This is Peggy and Polly,’ I grinned, stroking the fluffy heads of the green and grey parakeets. ‘Hello, hello,’ both birds chirped as Elise, then 4, and Saul, 1, giggled. It was summer 2008, and a relative had recently died, leaving the birds homeless. I took them in, knowing the kids would love them. Their humming and whistling in the hallway became a welcome distraction from the chaos at home. Because life with their dad Paul Hill was hell… I was 19 when I met Paul in a nightclub. He was a 35-year-old bouncer, and would treat me to romantic dinners and country rides on his motorbike. After six weeks, Paul moved in with me. Only,…

22-year reign of terror

During his trial, the court heard how Hill: • Pinned one woman against a wall by her throat. When she left due to his violence, he ‘destroyed’ their flat and killed her kitten. She returned to find the place desecrated and her kitten’s body amongst rubbish on the kitchen floor. • Threw another victim’s cat out of an upstairs window. • Strangled Sarah-Jane’s mum Patricia, then 39, after drunkenly shouting, ‘I’m a killing machine!’, until her face turned purple. • Threatened his own Alsatian when one victim said she was leaving him. • Hurled burning cushions at one woman, telling her to choose between burning to death, being thrown out of a third-floor window or returning to a party he’d been kicked out of for being aggressive.…
