Piers Morgan may be many things, but a quitter is not one. In his journey from local news reporter to one of Britain's most famous faces, Piers has experienced more than his fair share of success, scandal, and setbacks - each time, rising to occupy positions of ever greater influence. But now in his mid 50's, will he choose to slow things down or age disgracefully? And is he ever touched by the sting of regret? Plus, we're joined by exercise scientist and Olympian, Greg Whyte who shares his tips for keeping fit in middle age. Just a hint: relaxing isn't one of them! 
Gabby Logan will not succumb to beige middle-age. And neither should you.  But what is going on with us when we reach the middle of our lives, emotionally, physically and mentally? Speaking candidly to a host of well-known faces, Gabby hopes to find some answers. In this second season of The Mid•Point Gabby welcomes Piers Morgan, Davina McCall, Rio Ferdinand, Tess Daly and Richard Bacon to reflect on their own midlife challenges and expectations, drawing on the advice of experts - from sleep specialists and sex therapists to nutritionists and hormone consultants.  So what are you waiting for? Now’s the perfect time to hit subscribe.  
We finish this series with the legendary Mariella Frostrup. Having smashed through the career glass ceilings so many times - reinventing herself over and over when being told she can’t - her reward is being the cultural presenting icon she is today, and feeling secure in herself as she hits menopause. We’re joined by nutritionist Paul Chamberlain, who says it’s all about balance and that Omega 3 is what we need when it comes to keeping our brains tip-top and sharp.
From a very successful career making TV happen off camera, to becoming recognised nationwide as a TV personality on Pointless, Richard Osman's life has flipped completely and now he's a chart-topping novelist too. How does he feel about becoming unexpectedly famous and what does that mean now he's also single? Plus, we're joined by relationship expert Annabelle Knight who takes a look at what it is to keep a relationship alive, or start over anew, in the midlife.
Denise Lewis had an Olympic Gold medal and three lovely children and then at the age of 46 she decided to have another baby. While caring for a toddler at 47 she also found herself taking her teenage son to a BLM march and realising that she hadn’t really had frank conversations about race with any of her children until now. Dr Pixie McKenna joins to talk about the hormonal changes we experience in midlife.
Andrew Cotter might have had one of the most successful Lockdowns of all time, using his award winning commentary skills to entertain the internet with the help of his Labrador’s Mabel and Olive. At 47 he’d had itchy feet, lockdown forced his creative comedic brain into overdrive and a new venture was born. Jim Hytner Global COO of IPG Mediabrands joins in to discuss how to get your ‘lockdown’ business idea off the ground. 
Being more than a woman is something very important to today’s guest. Caitlin Moran has chronicled her life up to now in her amazingly candid books - and is spending her midlife trying to be the very best hag she can be. We’re also joined by the superb Charlotte Green, who’s our very stylish expert. She’s talking all things wardrobe, and how to do comfortable clothes in the most age-appropriate way
Michael Johnson may be a retired sprinter, but his journey is far from over. From settling into a new, slightly less stress filled life (still rammed packed full of goals and challenges) to using his platform to fight systemic racism, via a stroke - Michael isn’t accepting retirement to mean that it’s time to sit back and relax. Ian Marber joins us to talk about nutrition, and how to start paying into your nutritional pension. 
Claudia Winkleman can’t wait to turn 50! The Cambridge educated Saturday night TV host will not fight ageing “grow your fringe longer” and is content “I have enough friends and I am not trying a new restaurant an hours drive across London with a ‘fun’ couple I met on holiday”. The key to a successful life for her is the ability to power nap, so Gabby and Claudia are joined by Sleep guru Nick Littlehales.
John Bishop gave up his job as a pharmaceutical rep at 40 to become a full-time comedian, the result of one of the most successful mid-life crisis decisions ever. John and Gabby are joined briefly by the ultra challenge expert Greg Whyte who gives targeted fitness advice and delivers his theory on the middle-aged obsession for donning tight lycra and getting on a bike.
Gabby Logan is middle-aged and unashamed. But what does it mean to be at the halfway stage of your life? Here, Gabby talks candidly to well-known faces about their own midlife challenges and expectations, drawing on the advice of experts from sleep gurus, nutritionists, and doctors specialising on hormone treatment. With upcoming guests including John Bishop, Claudia Winkleman, and Denise Lewis, now’s the perfect time to press ‘subscribe’.
