Anthea Turner appeared on today's show

Anthea Turner appeared on today's show, and she opened up about the pain of divorce in her fifties.

She's writing a book about her experiences and what she did to cope.

"One of my big points in this book is, you should never see this as a weakness, to be decent, to let go. All those things. Have all those conversations with your friends, talk to the mirror, but be true to the real you, not the you who is raging. Don't make decisions after the third glass of wine. It's not going to help."

The whole interview is available at the ITV Hub.

Jill Halfpenny: "I struggle"

Jill Halfpenny was a guest on the show today.

She was chatting about the new series of 'In The Club' on BBC1, and chatting about balancing her home life and her career.

She explained: "I struggle, I actually really struggle. I do the job that I love and I want to feel creative and I want to do all those things, but when I'm away from home it hurts. I have that tremendous guilt."

The whole interview is available at the ITV Hub.

Katie Piper on today's show

We had the wonderful and inspirational Katie Piper on the show today.

She talked about her new show 'Never Seen A Doctor', and how married life is treating her, and whether more kids are on the horizon...

"I don't know, never say never. I'm one of three so we'll see."

"It's been really busy year. She [her daughter Belle] is two now so she is kind of talking and walking and she is into everything."

The whole interview is available over at the ITV Hub.
