Actor's first memory of OCD 'playing football in school'

Former Coronation Street actor Ian Puleston-Davies, who has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, has returned to his home town in Wales to look into the condition he says is much misunderstood.

Puleston-Davies said he first realised he was "different" while playing football at school in Flint, Flintshire.

He said: "I loved football but, for some reason, every time I was passed the ball I would anxiously check the flies of my shorts to make sure they were done up."
