BBC Three has announced a new documentary film on insomnia, presented by Kiss FM’s Daisy Maskell.
Daisy Maskell – Insomnia and Me sees the breakfast radio host investigate her own insomnia, consulting experts to find the roots and causes, while offering personal insights into her consequent struggles with her mental health.
Maskell will also look at the various treatments and cures, and meet young people from across the country to explore why so many suffer from sleeping disorders. According to research by the NHS, the number admitted to hospital has doubled over the past seven years, and the pandemic has exacerbated the issue further still.
Maskell said: “I'm so excited to be making my first documentary with the BBC on a subject that I, like many others, have been affected by: insomnia.
“This sleep disorder has impacted much of my adult life and so this film will follow my own journey and that of other sufferers, tracing its origins to discover what really goes on while the rest of the world is sleeping.”
