Episode 159: Konnie Huq on life hacks, books and Blockbusters

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

Our guest on this episode is TV legend Konnie Huq! She tells us how she got her big break, and whether they were really all shagging behind the scenes on Blue Peter.

Then it's time for Huq's life hacks, including an innovative way of hiding grey hairs. She share some showbiz stories about being attacked by East 17's dog, and going on Blockbusters with a member of Boyzone. (As promised, we can reveal the member in question was Keith Duffy.)

We chat about Konnie's fab new kids' book, Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World. Of course there are some Scummy Mummy Confessions, plus a couple of surprise cameos. 

You can follow Konnie on Twitter @konnie_huq. Her book is out now.
