Our favourite duo are flying the flag for Ireland.

Vogue Williams, 37, and Joanne McNally, 40, have something to celebrate as their podcast, My Therapist Ghosted Me, has won the Champion Award at the 2023 British Podcast Awards.

Since April 2021, we have all become utterly obsessed with the duo and their podcast. It has gone from strength to strength and materialised into a tour that has taken the podcast around the UK, with future dates for Ireland and Australia.

Their weekly ramblings come with 100% transparency, relatability, and hilarity, which makes it no surprise to see them named as champions in the podcast world last night.

The name for the podcast was inspired by Joanne's therapist quite literally ghosting her: Ignoring her calls, refusing to answer the door at the clinic, or speak to her after she'd tracked him down at Enfield crematorium as he scattered his Aunt's ashes.

In light of this, they decided that friendship and laughter are the best therapy and joined forces to bring both into listeners lives over the last two and a half years.

The awards were a star-studded affair as a number of industry heads were in attendance - including reality stars Jamie Laing and Sophie Habboo from the NewlyWeds podcast and TV and radio presenter Miquita Oliver who co-hosts the podcast Stirring It Up With Andi And Miquita Oliver.

Williams and her husband Spencer – who both co-host podcast Spencer And Vogue – also presented an award at the ceremony for best wellbeing podcast.

Elsewhere, more podcasts were honoured for their contribution to the world of audio entertainment.
