    Hello sweeties! We're back for a sneaky little bonus episode, with the one and only, gay AND pop icon, Will Young!

    As Will celebrates the 20th anniversary of winning Pop Idol this year, we talk about what he remembers from that historic day and his own experiences with loneliness and mental health - both of which have led him to his new book, Be Yourself and Happier: The A-Z of Wellbeing and podcast The Wellbeing Lab. Plus plenty more about gardening, gay-shame, and cults...
