“Come for the musical theatre, stay for the trauma!” That was the manifesto of the “Asda Kate Bush” Sooz Kempner, on her debut hour, an extraordinary verbatim performance of the real email her father sent to her mother, that led to divorce.

We talk about upbringing as the only girl that didn’t do ballet, and how that inspired her self-belief; learn to how wind up Flag Twitter and bat away Reply Guys; and discover how she maintains her armour via creative success…

20 mins of extra content available exclusively to the Insiders Club features Sooz on story-telling via nostalgia; the challenges of her handsome brother being on TV a lot; and how she deals with her internal mean girl.
