Episode 34: Book Special with columnist Lucy Mangan

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

This episode covers a wide range of topics, from Roald Dahl and chocolate to Catford and Helen's sex life. Our special guest is Guardian columnist Lucy Mangan, who tells us what her husband really thinks about being called Toryboy.

We play a stupid quiz and Helen tells her most uninspiring celebrity anecdote to date. Lucy tells us all about her new book, Inside Charlie's Chocolate Factory, and discuss our favourite Wonka.

You can follow Lucy on Twitter - @lucymangan. We're @scummymummies, and on the Facebook. Do email your confessions to, and visit to find previous episodes.
