Young Alba Page from Kelso will be glued to the TV on Sunday when brave mum Lynsey features in a BBC Lifeline Appeal on behalf of the MS Society.

The Kelso mother, 32, will be seen alongside celebrity Jack Osbourne who also has MS.

Lynsey was diagnosed on Christmas Eve, 2007. She married her husband Martin the following year. He is now her main carer.

Lynsey says being diagnosed with MS was tough: “I was in denial; I didn’t face up to it particularly well. I said to Martin it was his decision if he wanted to stay or not. He did, but it’s not a straightforward road, it can be hard.”

The appeal goes out on BBC 1 at 5.05pm.
