Show Notes

In the first episode of season four of the Her Spirit podcast BBC Breakfast Louise Minchin and BBC Triathlon presenter Annie Emmerson talk to presenter and author Frankie Bridge.

Best known as one-fifth of the UK's leading girl band The Saturdays, it's hard to believe that twenty-nine-year-old Frankie Bridge has been in the entertainment industry for over 15 years. Outside of music, Frankie has established herself as a TV Presenter & Digital Influencer. 

She hosted ITV1’s Cannonball with Freddie Flintoff, fronted Channel 5 immersive documentaries and regularly works with Channel 4 and BBC. This year, Frankie’s aim is to try new things - she’s performing with Disney on Ice around the country and has co-written a story with Cadbury for Easter. Frankie’s interests include fashion and beauty, fitness and well-being... as well as being a mum to her two young boys in Surrey. 

Frankie is a versatile, striking and credible face and personality, that resonates with both young and older audiences, whilst achieving mainstream media attention.

Frankie became an ambassador for MIND after opening up about her experiences of anxiety, depression and panic attacks, after her hospitalisation in May 2012.

Having initially dealt with these issues in silence, Frankie has been keen to support MIND in making sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone. Recently, she's been a key player in helping to launch the MIND partnership with Heads Together, as well as lending her support to Time to Talk Day. Frankie launched her first podcast series OPEN MIND focussing on mental health in 2019 and which debuted in the top ten podcasts upon release.

Frankie talks very openly about her mental health challenges and how she gets the best out of herself and the support she gets from her family and friends. She gives so much sound advice for women struggling emotionally and the role being active plays.
