Emily Segal on life skills: 'It was like I was reborn as stupid'

Emily Segal says not being taught many life skills made her feel she'd been "reborn as stupid" after leaving school.

The presenter told 5 Live's Sarah Brett she wishes she'd been taught formal email etiquette, financial literacy and how to work storage heaters at school.

"There's a lot of things that are very obvious that sometimes you aren't taught... When I first moved into my own place I had a £900 bill because I had something called a storage heater that was on the whole time."
