On tonight’s episode of Tipping Point Lucky Stars, Gaby Roslin will participate as a competitor with JJ Chalmers and Sean Fletcher on a special edition of the popular ITV game show. The celebs will compete for a chance to win large money for their favorite charity, which will be hosted by game show host Ben Shephard.
The program, which initially broadcast in 2020, was a source of contention among ITV viewers. However, many people may not be aware that Gaby once spoke out about being attacked on the street in front of her children.
Gaby stated she confronted a woman after seeing her litter on a London street during an interview on The Wright Stuff. The mother, however, punched Gaby in the face after she asked them to pick up their garbage.
She said: “I asked them to pick it up and they punched me in the face in front of my kids. That’s a completely true story. I wasn’t trying to arrest her. I took my kids hands and I turned around.
“My kids were really shocked. It wasn’t very nice.” Following the incident, Gaby told of how she was once left shaking after being mugged. She said: “This guy on a bicycle came up behind me and knocked me over and grabbed my phone.
“I chased down the street after him yelling obscenities. There was one woman who ran out to help me – not one man helped me. I then chased him into Oxford Street. I have run like I have never run before.
“I was so angry. I didn’t know I had that in me. Then I got the shakes and collapsed. I was in shock. He tried to beat me up as well. But the police were fantastic and they kept in touch with me the whole time.
“But interestingly a lot of people who I have told the story to say the same thing happened to them and the police didn’t. They said I was lucky because I was on the telly.”
Gaby Roslin, the daughter of BBC announcer Clive Roslin, claimed she changed her outlook on life after her father was diagnosed with colon cancer 26 years ago. Jackie, Gaby’s mother, was diagnosed with lung cancer shortly after her husband was diagnosed, and she died six weeks later.
The experience of losing her mum and caring for her dad prompted Gaby to change her approach to life.
She said, “I started devouring everything there was to know about health and nutrition after that and even now I love to read medical papers and articles until late into the night.
“For years in the public eye I used to be told ‘you’re such a happy person, always smiling, surely that can’t be real’ and I used to say ‘I’m really sorry but it is. Then after mum died I just decided to stop apologizing for enjoying life and being a happy person.”
