QUESTION OF THE DAY: Let us know your amazing travelling adventures – and your holiday disasters too!
PART 1: CELEBRITY GUEST: ALEXANDRA SHULMAN
Alexandra Shulman is celebrating 20 years as the editor of iconic fashion bible, British Vogue. In that time, Alexandra’s witnessed huge changes in the industry, and only last week she backed a decision by Vogue to ban underage and underweight models from the magazine.
Alexandra’s here to talk through some of the highlights of an amazing career - which has seen her awarded an OBE for services to the magazine industry – and to reveal the inspiration behind her debut novel, Can We Still Be Friends?
PART 2: EXPERT – DR RADHA
Everyone’s favourite GP is here to talk women’s health. She’ll be finding the truth behind the sometimes shocking newspaper headlines, and giving her views on eating disorders in young girls.
PART 3: REAL LIFE: Friends who drove a black cab around the world
After a night out left them with a huge taxi bill, friends Leigh Purnell, Johno Ellison, and Paul Archer, decided they’d try and set an even bigger one – by driving a black cab across the world.
After buying their taxi – which they affectionately named Hannah – from eBay, the trio set off, crossing some of the most dangerous and spectacular terrains in the world. From being mistaken for spies in Iran, to being arrested in Russia, the boys have got some great stories. They’ve now broken the record for the longest taxi journey ever.
PART 4: CELEBRITY GUEST: MELODY GARDOT
Grammy-nominated jazz star Melody Gardot was just 19 when she was seriously injured after being hit by a jeep in Philadelphia. Melody suffered severe injuries to her head and pelvis, and spent a year in rehab.
Whilst recovering, a doctor recommended that she got back in to music, having played in piano bars in the city before the accident. It was while convalescing that Melody began to write music, and shortly after her music was picked up by a local DJ. Three Grammy nominations later, Melody is about to release her third album, The Absence.
