A Place in the Sun’s Jasmine Harman flooded with support after emotional post about mother’s hoarding struggle
A PLACE in the Sun’s Jasmine Harman has been flooded with support after emotional post her mother’s hoarding struggle.
The TV presenter, 47, took to her Instagram account to share a very personal message with fans.
She revealed her mother is a hoarder, which is a behaviour where people accumulate food or other items.
Jasmine told fans how addressing the situation with her mum would only “inflame the situation” and leave her “upset and angry”.
She continued: “But talking to someone with more distance can help those on both sides of the equation to get a different perspective.
“People who hoard often do not realise the anxiety and hurt their behaviour can cause their loved ones
“Similarly, those who have a hoarding loved one can often blame that person, not really understanding that they aren’t doing it on purpose.”
The A Place in the Sun favourite added that she often wanted to keep her mother’s hoarding struggle a secret from everyone else.
She encouraged her fans to reach out to her Hoarding Support community for information and to find support for people they may know who are hoarders.
Fans were quick to reply to her post as one said: “Sending you hugs, really difficult situation.”
A second wrote: “Well done Jaz, lovely photo of mummy.”
“I remember the program you made with your mum years ago, well done,” said a third.
While a fourth commented: “Wow this is extremely personal thank you for sharing very brave x.”
Jasmine will be back on screens very soon with a brand new series of A Place in the Sun launches on Channel 4.
