Edith Bowman on festivals, Lionel and a C-section!

I did Glastonbury two weeks after having a C-section! If you're prepared and up for it, you'll have a great time.

– Edith Bowman

Festival fanatic Edith Bowman joined us today to talk about her passion for Glastonbury.

But she had a tough job trying to change Janet Street Porter's mind on the matter after she wrote about her hatred for wellies, loud music and toilet troubles last weekend.

June Sarpong

June has enjoyed a 15-year career which has already seen her become one of the most recognizable faces of British television, as well as being one of the UK’s most intelligent and dynamic young hosts! So much so that HM The Queen awarded her an MBE in 2007 for her services to broadcasting and charity, making June one of the youngest people to receive the award.

Over the years she's taken on the world’s most challenging live audiences: from hosting 2005’s major Make Poverty History event in London’s Trafalgar Square to presenting at the UK leg of Live Earth in 2007. In 2008 she even hosted Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday celebrations alongside Will Smith in front of 30,000 people at London’s Hyde Park!

As well as her broadcasting work June is also passionately involved with several charitable foundations having worked extensively with HRH Prince Charles for over a decade as an ambassador for his charity the Prince's Trust, as well as campaigning for The One and Product (RED). And when she's not busy doing any of that she's working as Co-Founder of the WIE Network (Women:Inspiration & Enterprise).

After living in America for 8 years, June has recently moved back to her hometown of London and is thrilled to be joining the Loose team.
