Speaking to Johnny Seifert on the Secure The Insecure podcast, the singer opened up about working on the show, revealing that the stars have to watch what they so as not to get cancelled by social media.

She explained: ‘It was free, it’s not free now.

‘It’s a very different show because the world has changed and I have to say for the better in many ways.

‘You cannot get away with certain things now. However, it was a much easier show to do in those days.’

Hinting that some of their points of view are scripted before they’re voiced on air in a bid to avoid a legal issue, she went on: ‘Now everything we discuss in the meeting – all of our opinions – have to go up to the legal team.

‘We have to make sure we’re hopefully not going to offend – you very much self-edit on that show now.’

Discussing the fear of being trolled on social media in the wake of cancel culture, she continued: ‘That’s because of social media too. You’ll go to say something that’s your genuine opinion and straight away you’ll say in your head “no, I’ll get trolled to death”.

‘I think that’s a shame really. I’d like to think we can all have opinions.

‘That doesn’t warrant someone being nasty to you just because they don’t agree.But that’s the world we live in.

‘We’re a lot more aware of that now, so it’s not the same.’
