The podcast has had a great success with Lorraine and Rosie, who have interviewed countless A-listers who all shared their 'what if' moments in life.

The star-studded list of guest list includes the likes of fellow ITV star Katie Piper, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Sophie Ellis Bextor and Astrazeneca vaccine creator Dr Catherine Green.

In a recent episode of the podcast, Katie and the mother-daughter duo discussed what it's like working together, Katie said: "How is that [working together]" and Rosie replied: "I think we're fine...right?" to which Lorraine agreed. Katie joked: "That sounded like a question not a statement!"

Whether they think it or not – we think they're doing a fantastic job!
