Actor Adam Deacon: Life with bipolar, and being sectioned

Bafta award-winning actor Adam Deacon was diagnosed last year with bipolar disorder, a condition that causes extreme mood swings.

He explains how he was sectioned in 2014, and sought advice from fellow actor Stephen Fry - who also has the condition.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel.
