Festive Greetings and Welcome to this is the final episode in the wonderful Health Unwrapped series that I’ve been running with Bioglan for the last year. We’re welcoming Ebony Rainford-Brent, former international England cricketer who now works as a broadcaster and commentator. This is a brilliant conversation to end our inspirational series and we hope you enjoy it.

How active she is now compared to how she was previously.

Coping with the body as it ages and whether Ebony gets frustrated by not being able to do what she previously could.
