View From My Sofa with Zara McDermott

This week’s guest is the reality TV star turned documentary maker, Zara McDermott. First appearing on our screens in 2018 as a “bombshell” on Love Island – she has since appeared on E4’s Made In Chelsea and hosted her own dating show Love In The Flesh. Zara released a documentary for the BBC on Revenge Porn which unflinchingly investigated the impact of the unauthorised sharing of explicit images and helped change the law in the UK. Since, then she’s made a documentary on Rape Culture and most recently, Disordered Eating. In this episode, Zara talks to Kelly-Anne Taylor about how working in government gave her the confidence to speak her mind, how she handles unpacking her own trauma and her love of Gossip Girl.
