We’ve all had wardrobe malfunctions – moments when our clothes badly let us down. Susannah Constantine has had many. Like the time she was at a Windsor Castle supper when her dress straps snapped, releasing her breasts into the soup.
Clothes and how they define us have fascinated Susannah for years – and were famously explored in her seminal 'What Not To Wear' TV series and bestselling books.
Now, she returns to her first and true love in the ‘My Wardrobe Malfunction’ podcast in which she meets a dazzling array of well-known figures to discuss their relationship with clothes – as they reveal everything from their 'comfort blanket' to their 'burial suit' and, of course, their ultimate wardrobe malfunction...

My Wardrobe Malfunction update
As Susannah says, we’ve taken a break from your ears but My Wardrobe Malfunction is still continuing with weekly video episodes on our website!
Stacey Dooley and her shivering skirt
Intrepid and inspiring Stacey Dooley joins her friend Susannah Constantine in this week’s My Wardrobe Malfunction. Known for her hard-hitting documentaries, Stacey came to even greater popular attention when she entered and won BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 with her partner Kevin Clifton. Susannah was voted out first that year but tries not to hold it against her.
The pair discuss oversized cashmere, cardboard outfits, the impact of fast fashion, inside out knickers, flashing on Strictly and ‘Nan sandals’ – and Stacey reveals how an attempt at teenage chic ended in disaster…
Dame Kristin Scott Thomas and her competitive corset
We’re honoured to have a real-life Dame in this week’s Wardrobe – the fabulous Dame Kristin Scott Thomas. Her list of stage and screen credits could fill a whole podcast in itself but you’ll have seen her in everything from Four Weddings to Fleabag. And she stars in the new feel-good movie Military Wives which is out this week.
She and Susannah discuss jumble sales, deflected compliments, lost jewellery, Catherine Deneuve’s astute observation, the power of high heels and getting stuck in a clothes rut – and Dame Kristin reveals how wearing a corset brought out her competitive spirit…
Joe Sugg and his supermarket ID check
To teenagers, he’s Thatcher Joe – a YouTube megastar with eight million subscribers and over a billion video views. The rest of us got to know and love Joe Sugg on TV’s Strictly Come Dancing. He’s also an actor, entrepreneur, author, West End star and is soon taking a variety show on the road with his girlfriend and former Strictly partner Dianne Buswell.
Joe and Susannah discuss Indiana Jones hats, presentable thatching, floral ties, armpit hair, bad circulation and ninja moths – and Joe reveals how his youthful looks continue to cause him trouble in Sainsbury’s…
Trinny Woodall and her pink suit farce
She needs no introduction but here’s a quick one: Susannah reunites with best friend, What Not To Wear partner and make-up brand entrepreneur Trinny Woodall for this very special episode of My Wardrobe Malfunction.
The pair discuss mourning their separation, ‘peacock fathers’, failing memories, breaking their own fashion rules, face yoga, the joy of sequins – and Trinny reveals the extreme measures she took to avoid a ferocious mother of the bride...
Nile Rodgers and his priceless dog chains
He’s a genuine music legend and the Chicest man on earth. Nile Rodgers has worked with everyone from David Bowie and Madonna to Sam Smith and Lady Gaga and produced music that has sold over half a billion albums.
He and Susannah meet at Abbey Road Studios where they discuss baggy trousers, hand washing suits, blue suede shoes, mascara hair dye, his debt to Madonna, remarkable pets – and Nile reveals his stylish tribute to his beloved late Dalmatian.

Funny, sassy & charming - SUCH a fun listen!
Having been a fan of Susannah Constantine & Trinny Woodall since the early 2000’s, I was over the MOON to learn that Susannah had a new podcast. My Wardrobe Malfunction did not disappoint - Susannah takes her guests into a journey through their wardrobes, their pasts & their life experiences, and we are brought along for the fab trip. Clothing, of course, is a part of the conversation -but just like when you’re out for coffee with friends, the conversation often veers off topic into fun, touching & interesting topics & you’re always surprised when it’s time to go.
Absolutely LOVE the Suse & Trinny episode - if you loved What Not to Wear (or even if you sadly haven’t ever watched) the chemistry between these two hilarious ladies is as strong as ever.
That’s what My Wardrobe Malfunction feels like - coffee and a catch up with dear old friends, who brought along a new fab person that you get to know. 10/10 Susannah!
Lose the background music. Your voice is enough. Otherwise, great stuff.
Best podcast ever recorded
So fun to have Trinny and Susannah back!
