Inside the world of The One Show presenter Angela Scanlon


  • I am going... boxing and I love it. I've been doing it at 1Rebel or I do it with a pal of mine who has the pads. I'm obsessed with it, it feels like mediation because it's just 45 minutes of thoroughly pounding the bag. I mix and match quite a bit but at the moment I'm obsessed with boxing because it's really good for stress.

  • I am watching... Peaky Blinders. The new series is coming out so I've been re-watching in preparation. I'm obsessed – first and foremost with Cillian Murphy and Helen McCrory as Polly is brilliant. The hats, the costumes, the accents are all brilliant.

  • I am reading... The Cows by Dawn O'Porter. She sent me a forward copy and I loved it but it's a really awkward read. I think any books that make you recoil in parts or cry or laugh are absolutely brilliant, and quite shocking. 

  • I am eating... a lot of smoked salmon. A barbecued salmon with wholegrain mustard seed on the top is good as well, straight out of the packet – I'm all for things that don't need to be cooked. I am really good at a one pot wonder though, whether it's a curry, or a casserole or something undefined.

  • I am wearing... leopard print, always. Or a cashmere jumper that really has seen better days. It's got holes in it but I shave it to get all the balls off it. It doesn't matter how good the cashmere is, it will always get balls so use a disposable razor and it's as good as new.

  • I am using... the mindfulness app Headspace. Buddhify is also a good one if I'm on the train or walking, because with Headspace you have to close your eyes so you might miss your stop. The Buddhify one is like a Trivial Pursuit wheel and it tells you how to be in the moment when everything is happening around you.

  • I am excited... to become a Garnier Nutrisse and Ultimate Blends ambassador. Also that as a ginger we now have our own emoji! 

  • I am loving... sleeping. I read that Gwyneth Paltrow was doing her whole "clean sleeping" thing and it's all about creating rituals around sleeping. I'll put lavender around, I'll put a hair mask on and a sink in face mask and it's just like a little cocoon. I attempt to get nine hours sleep twice a week, and it's like having a mini holiday.

  • I am trying... to call people. I find that I forget how to have a normal, human interaction with people on a phone because I usually only call when I need something specific. I used to love talking on the phone for hours and hours but I talk a lot for my job so sometimes the last thing I want to do is have a chat and so I have to force myself to do it. It's going really well though!
