Nic Hamilton is Extraordinary!

Nic Hamilton had a dream of becoming a racing car driver when he was just 4 years old.

Nic was born with Spastic Diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy which affects the use of both his legs. Not one to be told what to do, Nic was determined to prove everyone wrong. He became the British champion of an online driving game, developed the strength in his legs to drive a racing car for real and was the first disabled driver to take part in the British Touring Car Championship, the pinnacle of British motorsport.

Daniel Howell is Extraordinary!

Daniel Howell is a name that 17 million people will know from being avid followers of his YouTube channel for the past 10 years. In the beginning, these followers were built tall from Dan’s comedian prowess… and no-one questioned it.  Several years into his success one person started to question where his humour came from and who he really was, and the person with those questions, was Dan. In the last few years Dan has bravely used his platform to air his struggles with his mental health and his sexuality, hoping to help others going through similar difficulties, and he hasn’t stopped there.  With his brand new book “You Will Get Through This Night” releasing next week, Dan is giving advice to his readers he wished he’d had all those years ago, providing the tools to understand your own mind.  Dan and Katie hit it off as they discuss the amazing clarity he found after coming out as gay, the effects comedy has had on his life and the difficult truth about going for a run!

By posting a photo baring her empty socket, she attracted the attention of many who have the same prosthetic as her and continues to be just as inspired by her followers as they are by her!  Livi joins Katie as they discuss her journey of acceptance, where she finds her strength and resilience, and the lengths she went to to keep her wig on for her favourite fairground ride!

Carole Baskin is extraordinary!

Carole Baskin was one of the biggest break-out stars of 2020. Having devoted her life to the Big Cat Rescue animal sanctuary, she suddenly found herself at the centre of the cultural phenomenon of the year, as one of the stars of Netflix series Tiger King. On its release, it soon became clear to Carole that the series was not the ‘Blackfish for big cats’ that she signed up for, but rather a deep-dive into co-star Joe Exotic’s vendetta against her, and about her husband Don Lewis’ disappearance, thrusting Carole into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. In this very rare interview, Carole opens up to Katie about how she’s processed the events since Tiger King was released, as well as giving her personal and emotional account of how she dealt with Don’s disappearance. She explains how she found closure in that time, how she’s managed to remain positive since she learned Joe was behind a murder-for-hire plot against her, and reflects on what she felt was a betrayal by Tiger King’s producers.

Dr Alex George is extraordinary!

Just a few years ago, Dr Alex George would not have been a face that you’d have recognised, unless he’d treated you on the A&E wards. That all changed when he won the hearts of millions of fans in the 2018 series of Love Island. He may not have found love in the villa, but he became a much loved face on our screens, going on to use his fame to help spread awareness about mental health.  What makes Dr Alex particularly extraordinary is how he remained so positive during an extremely tough 2020. Whilst most of us were told to stay at home, Dr Alex was on the front line, working day and night treating Covid-19 patients at Lewisham and Greenwich Hospital. He also dealt with tremendous personal loss, as his younger brother, Llŷr, tragically passed away in the midst of the pandemic. In this episode, Dr Alex reflects on the events of last year, sharing what life has been like on the wards, how he found his purpose again after his appearance on Love Island, and how his family is coping with the loss of Llŷr.
