E210: Davina McCall: “I was doing cocaine with my mum at 15!”

Davina McCall has been an icon of television for 40 years. The host of Big Brother for over a decade, tens of millions of people looked to Davina to bring a national obsession into their homes. But few know the real story of Davina. From a heartbreaking childhood that saw her take drugs with her mother to hosting one of the biggest shows in the world, she’s come a long way. At every step along her journey, no one was going to define her but herself. No matter how many times she got hurt no one could take away the one thing she could control, her resilience. Consistently breaking down barriers and forging new paths, Davina was the first female television host to put her bubbly and occasionally feisty persona front and centre, and she was the first mainstream figure to create a fitness platform that has inspired millions of people to get active in the fifteen years she’s been in the game. Having consistently inspired so many people in her life, she dropped by to gift us some of her inspiration too. Topics: Your most defining moment What did you want to be when you were 16? When did you first go into TV The moment you got off drugs Hypnosis healing trauma Your desire to be famous Your states of happiness now Your career in TV Manifestation Your sister Caroline The process of grief Your book Menopausing Men dealing with menopausal women Forgiving your mother The last guest question Davina: Instagram - https://bit.ly/3GCcF7P Twitter - https://bit.ly/3XafyCp Davina's book: https://bit.ly/3WNHhc9 Watch the episodes on Youtube: https://g2ul0.app.link/3kxINCANKsb Follow: Instagram: https://bit.ly/3CXkF0d Twitter: https://bit.ly/3ss7pM0 Linkedin: https://bit.ly/3z3CSYM Telegram: https://g2ul0.app.link/SBExclusiveCommun Sponsors: Huel - https://g2ul0.app.link/G4RjcdKNKsb Intel - https://bit.ly/3FxWMO2 Learn more about your ad choices.

A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, at 18 I built an industry leading social media marketing company, and at 27 I resigned as CEO. At 28 I co-founded Flight Story – a marketing and communications company, and thirdweb - a software platform, making it easy to build web3 applications. I then launched private equity fund, Flight Fund, to accelerate the next generation of European unicorns. During this time I I decided to launch 'The Diary Of A CEO' podcast with the simple mission of providing an unfiltered journey into the remarkable stories and untold dimensions of the world’s most influential people, experts and thinkers. Thank you for listening. My New Book: https://g2ul0.app.link/DOAC IG: https://www.instagram.com/steven LI: https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevenbartlett-123
