Dan Walker on having an out-of-body experience, Strictly, and why we all need to be kinder

On today’s episode, we’re joined by a very familiar face. He's the renowned news and sports anchor formerly from BBC Breakfast and now Channel 5's early evening news show: it’s Dan Walker!

Fresh from the release of his new book, “Standing on the Shoulders,” where he explores the stories of extraordinary individuals making a difference in their communities, Dan sits down to share personal anecdotes about the remarkable people who have left a mark on his life. From Des Lynam’s sage career advice in Dan's formative years, to the transformative impact of his Strictly dance partner – Nadiya Bychkova – and the unwavering support of Richard Hughes during a challenging moment in a Polish hospital.
