‘I am someone who should never drink, and I rarely do, and I don’t drink anymore, but I was going through something,’ Selma explained.

‘I had a glass of wine and someone gave me a pill that I thought was something that I’d taken before… it was something completely different… and I had a total psychotic blackout.’
