So, as Kayleigh spoke in an interview with The Guardian, In My Skin is autobiographical, and therefore was even filmed a few streets over from where Kayleigh lived as a child.
Growing up, her mother had bipolar disorder type one, “so quite severe”. Kayleigh said she lived in fear that kids in her school would find out that her mother was frequently being sectioned in a psychiatric ward. Because she thought once they knew of it, they would make fun of her, ostracize her, or even worse, they would make fun of her ailed mother.
Fewer details were altered for the screen, including making Bethan an only child. While Kayleigh has a sibling (sister) in real life.
More to it, actress Jo Hartley, who plays Bethan’s mom Trina, and Kayleigh made a choice that Jo would never meet her mother.

Further, Kayleigh’s father who died in 2015 had been estranged from his family for ten long years.
