Episode 146: Mel Giedroyc on comedy, motherhood, and Bake-Off

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

For this episode, we are joined by the amazing Mel Giedroyc - comedy hero, TV star and all-round absolute legend!

She doles out sage advice on everything from handling teenagers to performing at Edinburgh. We talk about the time she sang with Limahl in an airport, and cover othr highbrow topics like weeing in the bath. Then it's time for the return of the segment no one asked or expected to hear again: Bin Chat.

Like us, Mel is a great humanitarian, so she is appearing on our stupid podcast in aid of Comic Relief. Please give them some money - to donate £5 text the word DONATE to 70205.

T&Cs: Texts will cost your donation plus your standard network message charge and 100% of your donation will go to Comic Relief. We won't let Helen spend any of it on earrings. You must be 16 or over, just like with driving mopeds and doing sex. Please do ask the bill payer’s permission. For full terms and conditions, more information or to donate any amount you like online please go to comicrelief.com. Your home may be at risk if you drink too much white wine and give all your money to Comic Relief in the hope Lenny Henry will come round and tell you you're a great humanitarian.

Red Nose Day is back on Friday 15 March - so why not do a bake sale or get someone to sponsor you for sitting in a bath of baked beans? Or just give them some money, as above, and enjoy the smuggery without the hassle.


Mel is appearing in Company at the Gielgud Theatre until the end of March - tickets are on sale now.
