‘Bodyguard’ has been praised by a mental health charity over its handling of lead character David Budd’s struggle with post traumatic stress disorder. 

The final episode of the hit BBC drama saw the former soldier seek support after spending the series traumatised from his time serving in the forces. 

Emotional scenes saw him meet with an occupational therapist and finally say out loud that he needed help.
