Sam helped me beat de­pres­sion

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

CORO­NA­TION Street star Sam Aston’s hugs and ad­vice helped his fi­ancée bat­tle her de­pres­sion. Bri­ony Gard­ner, 23, was pre­scribed an­tide­pres­sants when she was feel­ing down but talk­ing to Sam, who plays Ch­es­ney Brown, was a suc­cess­ful al­ter­na­tive. She also cred­ited yoga for help­ing her through her dark mo­ments. Now she even teaches it. This week she posted a video of her­self bin­ning the bot­tle of an­tide­pres­sants while do­ing a head­stand. Telling how Corrie’s Sam sup­ported her, she said: “Talk­ing is a life­saver. Luck­ily I had some­one at home to hug me and tell me to pause, to think about other op­tions.” Sam pro­posed to Bri­ony in June. They plan to get mar­ried next year.
