Clara Amfo is a radio and TV broadcaster best known for her work on BBC Radio 1, (she currently presents Radio 1's infamous Live Lounge). On the 7th March, 2015, Clara's dad's life was cut short by a sudden and unexpected heart attack. He was in Ghana attending a funeral at the time. Clara - who was in Paris about to run the half marathon - had to put her life on pause and get back home to her family. Feeling overwhelmed and craving escapism, Clara threw herself into her new role as BBC Radio 1's Official Chart show and unhealthy romantic relationships. Eventually, however, grief caught up with her and she had to face what had happened, and how that felt. In this episode we talk all things death, grief, work, loss, relationships and...daddy issues! A year after Clara's dad died, she bravely went back to Paris to face that half-marathon run which had gotten so brutally cut short. Fortunately for us it was filmed and broadcast by the BBC, and is finally back up for people to see.
