"I'm thrilled I'm going to be interviewed on Radio DIVA tomorrow talking about my show The Secret Keeper," Clerkin told DIVA earlier.


"I'm hoping Rosie and Heather are going to reveal their darkest secrets to me on air!"​



We also have the lovely Anna Larner author of Highland Fling, Hooper Street, and Girls Next Door. She’ll be chatting to us about her upcoming second novel as well as her forthcoming appearance at the DIVA Literary Festival this November.


Larner told DIVA: "I am thrilled to be a guest on Radio DIVA. I can't wait to chat about all things writing and to share my excitement about the upcoming DIVA Literary Festival!"


Michael Blyth, Film programmer for BFI London Film Festival, will also be in the studio chatting to us about LGBT highlights at the forthcoming festival. 


And of course, we’ll have our roving reporter Rachel Shelley and lovely lesbro, Jonathan Phang with the very latest in LGBT news!
