If you haven't seen Cheer yet, you are in for an absolute treat. This 6 part documentary series focuses on the personalities and journeys of a group of Cheerleaders in the small town of Corsicana , Texas. On the face of it, this is a show about acrobatics, tumbling and fierce competition - but scratch below the surface and it's like no show you've seen before. It is a compelling and gripping look at empathy, acceptance, determination and family in all it's guises.

How does that narrative translate over here in the UK? Well, Dotty found out when we invited London's finest Cheerleading troupe, Ultimate Cheer, in to discuss what they love about the show - and how closely it resembles their own experiences.

Then, in an unexpected turn of events, we got a call from Cheer superfan Rob Rinder who took us down an incredible rabbit-hole as he talked about why the show means so much to him.

If that wasn't enough (!) Jamie caught up with the creators of Locke and Key to talk spooky doors and also Ben Hardy from the explosive 6 Underground to find out what life as a megastar actor is really like.
