This is the final episode in the series, and it's a personal one for me as I'm joined by my wife Sam and her friend Tara to talk about their very different experiences with breast cancer. With Sam opting for a double mastectomy and Tara having a lumpectomy, their journeys to recovery haven't been the same at all, and they've got quite differing outlooks on what's happened to them.

Both Sam and Tara are incredibly honest about what they've been through in the hope it will raise awareness of the most common cancer in women and help anyone listening who might be going through the same thing. If you're struggling with any of the issues in this episode, you can get in touch via Instagram and Sam and Tara would both be happy to chat with you. I also give tips on how to check your breasts at the end of the episode.

My final dare for the series comes from Tara, who decided to get topless photos taken after she received her initial diagnosis as she wasn't sure where her journey would lead her. So that's what I'll be doing too in an effort to celebrate my body and show how incredible all women's bodies really are, even if we don't always feel like it! Luckily Sam is a photographer, so she'll be doing the shoot and I'll be as comfortable as possible.
