This week, Olivia is joined by author and writer Bolu Babalola, whose new book, Love in Colour, offers up a selection of ancient love myths that she has rewritten to make them contemporary and diverse.
A far cry from the white-washed Disney films and fairytales so many of us grew up watching and reading, Babalola's stories offer a more universal depiction of romance.
We talk about how she was inspired to write the stories after seeing a lack of black characters in romcoms, how fairytales impact the way we behave in relationships, and why Babalola thinks the online dating scene is 'atrocious' for black women in London.
