Homeless BBC TV Star Who Slept In The Graveyard Then Turned Life Around Found Hanged
The family of a ‘homeless’ woman who ‘turned her life around’ after starring in a BBC documentary about living on the streets have paid tribute after she was found hanged at home.
Paige Greenaway, who was homeless for seven years, spoke frankly about battling addiction and mental health issues whilst living on the streets and slept in a tent in a graveyard in Brighton in order to keep safe.
Paige’s mum, Edell, 47, said that appearing in the documentary ‘Love And Drugs On The Street’ drove her daughter to improve her situation and she was looking forward to the future.
Since it aired in 2017, Paige had got a job as an Avon lady, set her sights on joining the Navy and had recently signed up to a hair and beauty course at college.
And she was set to start a business with her mum selling soaps and candles.
But she was tragically found hanged at her flat in Brighton, on February 9, just two weeks after Edell last saw her.
