Nadia Sawalha gets driving refresher course

Nadia Sawalha is taking driving lessons again - because she's so nervous behind the wheel.

The 51-year-old TV star has confessed she has struggled with driving for years and has always let her husband Mark Adderley taxi both her and their two daughters Maddy, 12, and Kiki, eight, around.

But Nadia realised she has to get over her driving fears as she needs to be able to be on the road and so made the brave decision to go on a driving refresher course.

While appearing on 'Loose Women' on Thursday (26.11.15), she revealed: "I don't like driving I'm not confident, I panic. But with the kids having to go everywhere I decided to take it upon myself to have a lesson. So I had a driving lesson, even though I've got a full license."

When quizzed by her fellow panellists on how she got on in the car, Nadia replied: "She said I had talent!"

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star is pleased she made the call to get lessons again, but thinks a man could never admit they're a poor driver because their macho egos wouldn't let them confess they struggle in a vehicle.

She said: "I think it's much easier for a woman to do that (to admit they bad drivers), men always have to say they are the best driver ever - it's in their DNA."
