Dec 12 2022 • 28 mins

This week's difficult woman is the journalist and writer Sarah Standing. Sarah's career in writing began at 14 when she won a Vogue Young Writers competition. She has since written for Tatler magazine, the Telegraph and the Spectator where she became Travel and Lifestyle editor. For much of her life, Sarah has been surrounded by the glitz and glamour of the film industry. Her parents were the famous film director Bryan Forbes and the movie star Nanette Newman. She is now happily married to the actor John Standing. In October 2020 Sarah was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. She talks cancer, the physical and emotional impact it had on her life, and the support she had along the way...including from best friend Elton John.
