Prescott's bulimia battle

21st April 2008

John Prescott, the former deputy Prime Minister, has admitted in the Sunday Times that he suffered from the eating disorder bulimia.

Mr Prescott said the reason he was talking about the illness was to encourage other sufferers to seek help for the problem. He told the BBC: "I want to say to the millions of people, do take advice, it can help and it can help you out of a lot of misery that you suffer in silence."
