Rob Jelly, presenter of the evening show on BBC Essex:

"I think you've embraced the 'do something that scares you' ethos with both hands, both feet, both shoulder blades and absolutely every part of your being and I'm a little bit jealous of how brave you are with just grabbing it all, turning your very personal story into a book of poems, going on tour with that, standing on stage and telling people your story, but let's not get away from the fact that this is a celebration of you winning and continuing to win. Every day there's a battle and I'm sure there are days when you feel rubbish and there are days when you think 'stop this I can't be bothered', but you're winning and this is you showing other people that they can win as well. I think this is just amazing and I'm so glad to be able to talk about it on the show tonight."
