Mark Watson is a comedian, author and sports pundit. Taking to the stand-up stage with his first gig in 2002, he won the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Competition that same year and the rest is history… well, not quite? Mark and Gabby talk candidly about his divorce, using it as material for his comedy and, at times, misjudging how much to share. He opens up about his absent dad-guilt due to touring, and why the need for validation can be pragmatic for a comedian, rather than an ego stroke.

Mark turned 40 during the lockdown, giving him an opportunity to reassess his priorities when it came to his physical and mental health; which is why he started therapy and continues to run.

Mel Deane, a former international rugby player and now fitness coach, joins us to speak about the benefits of adding weight training to a workout routine.
