Louise Minchin admits confusion led her to ‘lock husband out of home’ ‘All over the place’
Louise Minchin, 52, has opened up on the difficulties she faced when she first began to experience the menopause. The BBC Breakfast presenter said she experienced confusion and problems with her memory initially.
Brain fog is a common symptom of the menopause, which is when a woman stops having periods and is no longer able to get pregnant naturally, according to the NHS.
Unfortunately for Louise, the symptom also caused an issue for her husband David Minchin, with whom she shares daughters Scarlett and Mia, in 2019.
The journalist had left their home, which is based just outside Chester, to do a candid interview about going through the menopause at the time.
However, her other half had to interrupt the interview and meet her at work to collect their house keys after she had mistakenly locked him out.
