Speaking on the safety tips in her book, Myleene said: ‘I really do believe in learning basic First Aid. I don’t think it’s enough if you just know it… we should all have access to it.
‘We’ve saved two lives – a baby because she’d read what to do. And a husband saved his wife when she was choking on a piece of chicken.’
Myleene has previously stressed the importance of teaching first aid in schools after saving both her daughters from choking.
The radio presenter, recalled the moment she was caught off-guard when her daughter Ava, 14, choked on calamari while on holiday four years ago, and when Hero, 11, got a plastic star stuck in her throat when she was 18 months old.

‘Hero choked on a small plastic star when she was one and a half.’

Myleene’s book also touches on treating jellyfish stings and recognising the signs of a stroke.
She also reminds people to ‘stop, drop and roll’ if they become engulfed in flames, recalling the moment she jumped to the assistance of a woman when her hair extensions caught fire at the launch of one of her classical albums, and when the same happened to a member of a rival pop band at a nightclub.

‘Stay safe, informed and empowered.
‘NB. The rescue breaths are most relevant to children regarding CPR as the majority of accidents where this is required/used happens around water/pools.’
