The LBC and former 5Live presenter has opened PMQs to public scrutiny and interviewed everyone from those that run the country to the cast of TOWIE. Shelagh admits to having the odd dream about George Osborne, who found out and encouraged her to enjoy the experience. As the story proves, she’s also a marvellous mimic.
