Nicky Campbell: Music is my release

Nicky Campbell co-presents Long Lost Family with Davina McCall

Nicky Campbell has said his new easy listening album is like a therapy to balance the emotion of filming Long Lost Family.

The 53-year-old TV presenter and radio DJ co-hosts the ITV show about bringing families back together with Davina McCall, which they both admit often moves them to tears.

Meanwhile, Nicky has just released album We're Just Passing Through with former Spitting Image impressionist and singer Kate Robbins.

Nicky said: "The album is a way of getting my emotions out.

"All these emotions go through you and we're very emotional people, and it's been like a therapy for me. It's totally cathartic."

But don't expect to find the TV presenter taking part in Strictly Come Dancing any time soon, as Nicky insists his musical side doesn't extend as far down as his feet.

He said: "I wouldn't want to dance though, I've never been a good dancer. I'm musical but I can't get it out..."

We're Just Passing Through is available at www.robbinscampbell.com.

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
