Having been the youngest (and first female) editor of Smash Hits Magazine and presenter of The X Factor, Pop Idol, This Morning and Loose Women, Kate's story in the world of media is one that must be heard. Kate speaks to Jarlath about the challenges raising her son as a single mother. They both discuss their fears of bullying.

From the incredible story of how she made the ground-breaking decision to put the Spice Girls on the cover of Smash Hits Magazine to discussing toxic masculinity in the music industry and much more, this conversation gives a rare insight into the journey behind Kate's career.
