In today's episode we're joined by TV presenter AJ Odudu. Aj is one of Britain's most exciting young presenters and personalities, most recently fronting Don't Rock The Boat with Freddie Flintoff, along with hosting Big Brother's Bit On The Side and Bake Off: An Extra Slice. Not content with simply fronting the nation's most popular TV shows, she's also a qualified personal trainer and sports nutritionist, and her YouTube exercise tutorials have gained her a huge online following. And, if that's not enough, she's an accomplished DJ too. But her route to success has been neither easy nor straightforward. Growing up, she had her sights set on being a TV presenter from an early age, but as a black girl from Lancashire, she's used to not fitting in, experiencing racism almost daily. But she wasn't prepared for the discrimination to continue as she tried to forge her career. She feels it wasn't simply the colour of her skin, but her northern accent and her gender at that held her back. Undeterred, she refused to change herself, and has proven that her talent, passion, and enthusiasm for everything she does is more than enough. This is AJ's story in her own words... *This episode is sponsored by Clinique. Promotion ends 31/01/2021 at 11:59pm whilst stocks last. Offer may vary and will be communicated at checkout.
