The Muscle Help Foundation Interview

If you follow me on social media, then you will know that I was recently invited as a guest on the latest episode of The Muscle Help Foundation's "In Conversation With..." series.


Previous guests on the show have included personalities such as Lorraine Kelly, so it was a real honour for me to be featured... god knows why they chose me?! haha

The online series was originally created during the first UK lockdown, with the aim to help the disabled community feel less isolated and more connected. Each monthly episode features a different guest, who will then share an insight into their personal life, work and achievements.


Whist I'm not officially contracted to share any of this, I can honestly say it was one of my favourite interviews to date. Michael and his team made me feel so welcome, and it was just nice to have such a relaxed chit-chat about life and everything in between.


For those who were unable to join us live on the night, I have linked to the full interview below. I have also listed some of the main talking points and timings, as an hour of my ramblings can be a lot to sit through all in one go!
