New BBC podcast for Catherine Bohart and Sarah Keyworth

Comics talk about the realities of relationships with other couples

Real-life couple Catherine Bohart and Sarah Keyworth have made a new Radio 4 podcast about relationships.

In each weekly episode of You’ll Do, the comedians will be joined by celebrity guests to ‘celebrate the nitty gritty, the ups and downs, and the peculiarities of building a life with other people'.

Couples taking part include:

  •  Nish Kumar and What Women Want podcaster Amy Annette
  •  Jayde Adams and Rich Wilson
  • Ed Gamble and TV assistant producer Charlie Jamison
  •  Zoe Lyons and Sindy De Jong, a nurse snaesthetist 
  • Paul Sinha and fellow quizzer Oliver Levy
  • Deborah Frances-White and improviser and writer Tom Salinsky
  • Joel Dommett and model Hannah Cooper
  • Joe Lycett talking about single life.

Bohart said: ‘#couplesgoals make us feel like we’re doing love wrong. Sarah and I love each over and at this point if we were to break up, the admin would be a nightmare. But if we did, we’d both cope. 

‘She’s not my soulmate, she’s who I choose to spend my life with and sometimes that’s romantic. It can also be difficult, boring, frustrating and repetitive. 

‘We want to talk about the reality of relationships, not the idealised version you see on the internet. Thankfully, a bunch of people were open and generous enough to tell us about how they make love work and it was really fun, so I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as we did!"

Keyworth added: ‘We just wanted to make something that reassures people that their relationship is not unusual just because it’s not the picture-perfect rom-com version of love. Love is hard. Mainly it’s bickering and farting and bickering about farting.’

You’ll Do, made by Whistledown, will be available on BBC Sounds from March 31.
