Fern Britton talks to high-profile figures about how their beliefs have shaped their lives.
Fern meets comedian, singer and Pointless presenter Alexander Armstrong, who talks candidly about the painful experience of being packed off to boarding school at the age of seven. He tells Fern that it was at boarding school that he was given the opportunity to develop his vocal talents and explains how this became the foundation of his Christian faith. He spills the beans on the hissy fit with comedy partner Ben Miller and reveals an obsession with llamas, and he and Fern have a stab at guessing Her Majesty the Queen's best Pointless subjects.
Fern Britton meets boxing legend and two-time world champion Nigel Benn. He charts his glittering career but also shares his more troubled personal journey. One that took him from a lifestyle of womanising and drug-taking, to the depths of despair and near suicide, before his conversion to Christianity ten years ago changed his life completely.
Fern Britton meets former Conservative Cabinet member Michael Gove, who played a prominent role in the Brexit campaign and then ran for the Tory party leadership, after withdrawing his support for former ally Boris Johnson. He talks about his career and his faith and the convictions that underpin his life.
Fern meets Rebecca Ferguson, the former teenage mum who became an X-Factor singing sensation. Rebecca reveals how her Christian faith got her through troubled times, both on the show that brought her overnight fame and in the years that followed. From being the victim of fraud to being left to bring up a child on her own, Rebecca says she is speaking out to help others.
Fern Britton meets American jazz singer-songwriter Gregory Porter, who has won two Grammy Awards and has a huge following. One of eight children raised in a single-parent family, Gregory's journey to stardom has been a long and sometimes difficult one. He reflects on his upbringing in small-town America, as well as how the influence of his mother, a pastor and powerful force for good, lives on in his music.
