Episode notes

Dr Zoe Williams is a NHS GP, media medic, health educator and a clinical champion of Public Health England’s Better Health campaign, encouraging people to make healthier changes. Zoe has competed at a high level in a number of sports including Athletics and Rugby Union and appeared as ‘Amazon’ on Sky 1’s Gladiators where she found that hitting people with giant cotton buds really is as much fun as it looks.

In today’s episode, we reflect on the first time she was interviewed on This Morning about coronavirus, how exercise is her true passion and how physical activity was given a proper rebrand during lockdown. She also explains the science behind why exercise produces ‘happy hormones’ and how it can actually change your brain chemistry. We also speak about her pregnancy and how she has achieved her two ambitions - to become a doctor and a mother!
