During a repeat episode of the BBC interview which aired on Sunday, Frank spoke with Fern about his rise from a tough schoolboy to being a world heavyweight champion. During the chat, which originally aired in 2012, Frank admitted the biggest fight he had ever had to face was his mental illness. The boxer turned to religion and explained his faith helped him to get through that battle. Following the candid interview, viewers took to social media to praise Frank for being so “brave”.
One viewer praised: “Insightful Frank Bruno interview @Fern_Britton. My stepfather has had two fantastical bipolar episodes, both terrified my mother and resulted in him living on the streets.
“Impossible to get ANY help for him until he gets arrested and sectioned. The UK needs pre-emptive solutions.” (sic)
Another penned: “I love that guy…I do really admire #Frankbruno. True LEGEND!” (sic)
“What a great ambassador for #MentalHealthMatters Frank Bruno is,” a third tweeted. Such a genuine person is rare these days to speak openly about his past.”
