Candid: Linda Robson has revealed she regularly tests her memory over fears she could suffer dementia like her late mum Rita
She said: ‘I test myself all the time to check I’m not getting it. I try to remember numbers, things like that. I’ve seen from first-hand experience how it turns lives upside down.
‘It was awful seeing the woman I worshipped deteriorate. There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t think of my mum.
‘It’s terrible to watch your loved-one disappear before you. It’s hard when they don’t recognise you or their grandchildren.’

Linda recently stunned fans after admitting she had lost a staggering two stone, and has gone onto explain that ditching alcohol helped her shift the pounds.
Speaking to her Loose Women co-panellists she said: ‘I used to drink a bottle of wine a night. I didn’t have a problem but now I think about it, it could have easily turned into one.
‘That is a lot to be drinking. I didn’t think it was an issue as I didn’t need it when I woke up.’
