Today’s guest, Helen Thorn, has helped me and so many others through 2020 with her wit and warmth. Comedian, writer, podcaster and all-round excellent human, Helen is one half of the hilarious comedy duo The Scummy Mummies, a joyous advocate of body positivity and someone whose mission on earth is to make other people happy. In this episode, Helen talks about the unexpected joy of becoming a single parent during a global pandemic, the ‘delicious treat’ that is online dating after being with one man for 22 years, how wearing gold catsuits on stage helped her learn to adore her size 18 body, and why rotten cucumbers are key to social media success. Follow Helen on Instagram @scummymummies and @helenwearsasize18. Play with Emily Murray is the podcast that’s all about finding the fun in our day-to-day lives.
