Quiz: How much do you know about common phobias?

Having a phobia is extremely common – in fact, it’s believed that up to 10 million people in the UK have some sort of phobia, according to the NHS.

A phobia is when someone develops an overwhelming fear of something, be it something living, like a spider, or a place, like a confined space.
