Sharleen Spiteri

The Midpoint is back and we’re kicking things off with an absolute powerhouse, both on stage and in everyday life. Sharleen Spiteri has never been one to sit on the fence; In the nineties, she broke new ground with an androgenous look and searing vocals that challenged an industry of men. Since then, her band Texas have sold over forty million records, including thirteen top-ten singles and three number-one albums, but she’s not stopping yet. At fifty-four, Sharleen is as passionate, energised and daring as ever, touring the world once again with new LP 'Hi'. But things have changed ever so slightly. Now four years into the menopause, Sharleen cuts life on the road with more leisurely pursuits, spending time in the garden and hiding her enviable wardrobe from her teenage daughter Misty. We also hear from menopause expert Dr Shahzadi Harper, who tells us why testosterone could be the key to inspiring a brilliant sex life, into midlife and beyond.   This episode contains language that's not suitable for young children.
