Former Countdown – whose son has high spectrum autism, ADD, dyslexia and ADHD – was visibly emotional when she revealed that when Cameron was ‘four or five’ she moved him to a new London school, however was told by teachers ‘we can’t have him here’ as ‘we can’t teach him’.
Touching upon being labelled ‘disruptive’ in school, Cameron explained: ‘That was the whole thing. Being disruptive… it was in a maths lesson. You’re panicking so much on keeping the rhythm with everyone else. When I can’t answer it quickly enough, you’d be disruptive because you couldn’t answer.’
Sharing just how protective she felt of her son in his younger years, Carol said: ‘As a mother, a single parent [you want to] protect, protect, protect. Like a lioness.’

She added: ‘I didn’t want him to grow up with labels,’ before saying that there were ‘early signs’ of her son’s learning difficulties, explaining that while her eldest child Katie King, 30, was able to ‘learn the alphabet easily’ Cameron ‘couldn’t retain information’.
Carol explained Cameron needed ‘an enormous amount of assistance’ and ‘went through bullying as a kid’.
She elaborated: ‘It’s a long road. Your heart, your world is unhappy. I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t give up telly – not that I wouldn’t give up telly. I didn’t know how to teach him.’
