If you lived in the UK between 1985-1999, you’ll recognise the unmistakable husky tones of Kara Noble. Kara was Queen of the radio airways - waking up 4 million Londoners on the radio every morning on Europe's most popular commercial radio station - 95.8 Capital FM - as the co-host of their Breakfast show, alongside the irrepressible Chris Tarrant.

So how did it turn from Kara being the darling of the airwaves to the national press calling her a 'traitor' on their front pages and forcing her to flee Britain for good?

For 17 years Kara has kept to herself the story of how a compromising photo of Capital FM's then-publicist Sophie Rhys-Jones - who married Prince Edward and became the Queen’s daughter-in-law - took her to the centre of a media maelstrom in the run up to the royal wedding. 

Kara talks to Caroline and Claire about overcoming this terrible time, as well as her extraordinary childhood where Paul McCartney would pop round and play ‘Yesterday’ on his guitar, to finally finding her own happy ending here in LA with her husband… who spent 26 years in jail, wrongly convicted for the murder of his mother. Her unmissable story is this week's BITW podcast.

    Kara Noble - I love you....always have done: Your warmth, humour, positive energy and kindness.
    Whenever I think of you I remember smoked salmon bagels at HALC, during Pesach....and more recently that gorgeous evening with you at Soho House in London.
