Episode 155: Simon London on adoption, racism, and Twiggy

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

The Scummy Mummies Podcast

Tuesday, 9 July

We tackle some controversial topics in this episode with the help of the brilliant journalist, presenter and telly producer, Simon London! 

He tells us about being adopted at the age of eight, and what it was like to go from a children's home to boarding school. We hear about some of the racism he's faced over the course of his life, and the advice he's giving his son about growing up as a mixed race child.


The conversation covers everything from knife crime and Raoul Moat to Fanta-based cocktails and photocopying your own tits. We also hear about Simon's time on telly shows like So Graham Norton, and he reveals the best and worst celebrities he's worked with.
