Lorraine Kelly, Paper Diaries, Dry Cleaning & Mantras

The utterly glorious broadcaster, writer and all-round icon Lorraine Kelly joins Jo and James in the podcupboard this week (how is she 60 next year? How!).


They discuss Lorraine’s incredible career in TV, and how she’s survived all those early mornings; her beloved border terrier Angus (James is keen on getting an Angus too); and how to maintain a sunny disposition in the era of selfie autographs.


And the team discuss their IIJMS: is it just Lorraine who still loves a paper diary rather than relying on her phone? Is it just James who has a gigantic pile of clothes that, realistically, are never going to be taken to the dry cleaners? And is it just Jo who can’t think up an Instagrammable personal mantra?


This week's episode was recorded on May 24. It was edited by Kat Brown, with music by Martin Austwick.
