Speech Debelle on what it is like being homeless

As a result of the current strain on rental properties, emergency housing in the UK is in short supply.

London rapper Speech Debelle, who was homeless herself for three years, has been speaking to some of Britain's 'hidden' homeless people, who are struggling to find accommodation and employment.

Speech, whose real name is Corynne Elliot, revisits the hostel she stayed in and explains how it inspired her music.

Britain's Hidden Homeless is broadcast on BBC Three at 21:00 on Monday 28 May. Watch online afterwards (UK only) or check for repeats at the above link.
