Mone gets host slot on BBC’s Woman’s Hour
The controversial former owner of the Ultimo brand is one of a number of “influential” women who will host the programme. Their stint on the long-running programme runs from 14 to 18 September.
Sex and The City star Kim Cattrall opens with the Monday programme and will focus on choosing a life without children, ageing, being single later in life and loss.
Ms Mone, whose appointment as a government adviser on start-ups has been condemned by critics, will appear on the Thursday programme. She will consider barriers to employment and business opportunities in deprived areas, mentoring, how the mind, body and career are linked and the psychology of weight loss and dating in the 21st Century for over 40s.
“I absolutely love Woman’s Hour and it is a real honour to be asked to be guest editor, we have four amazing topics to discuss and I can’t wait to get started,” she said.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) campaigner Nimco Ali, hosts the Tuesday programme, Bishop of Gloucester Rachel Treweek is Wednesday’s guest presenter, and children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson appears on Friday.
Woman’s Hour editor, Alice Feinstein, said: “Last year we had a great response to our guest editors and I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to secure five more inspiring women who will each bring a fresh outlook and ideas to the Woman’s Hour team.
“Their knowledge and expertise on a diverse range of subjects offers a starting point for discussions which we hope will resonate with our listeners.”
