Gail Porter comments, "Often the problem with debt is you can be too proud, scared or just don't know where to turn. There is such a negative stigma associated with personal debt that those in that situation have been frivolous and just wasted money, this is not the case. You think that hiding the debt will make everything ok, it will all turn out ok in the end and be fine. This isn't the case and in the long run, just makes the situation worse. Having been through this, I would encourage anyone who feels scared to reach out for support, whether that is through friends and family or professional help."Pearse Flynn, CEO of Creditfix, added:"Gail is an extraordinary person and whilst she may be well known and popular with the public, her story, sadly, is a very common one."My hope is that Gail having the bravery to share her personal experiences will give thousands of people the confidence to open up and talk to a close friend or family member about their own personal debt issues."
