And on Thursday night, Kate Garraway, 54, will interview 2015 Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, 37, for her second Life Stories show.

Nadiya, who is the daughter of Bangladeshi immigrants, has previously shared insights into her family’s experiences of Islamophobia, after she and her daughter were called ‘terrorists’. 

Speaking on Times Radio in November, the TV chef explained that in the wake of recent terror attacks in the UK, such abuse has become ‘normal’ for her family, and has made them more inclined to ‘stay at home’.

Nadiya said: ‘Not long ago, I was out with my daughter and it was post a terror attack and I had somebody called myself and my daughter terrorists. And that’s something that’s, I suppose, I shouldn’t have to say this, but it has become normal. 

‘So when things like that happen, we kind of tend to stay at home a little bit more because we know that the kids might experience something like it.’

It comes after Kate interviewed John Barnes, 58, about his iconic football career, in the first ever Life Stories with her at the helm. 

Fans of the show praised the presenter for being ‘refreshing, professional, witty and confident’ as she quizzed John about becoming one of the greatest players in Liverpool FC’s history. 

Ahead of her first show last week, Piers Morgan took to social media to wish her good luck. He wrote: ‘Good luck to @kategarraway who hosts her first Life Stories show tonight. 

‘As I told Kate today, it does feel a bit weird handing over the reins of a show I presented for so long, but at least it’s to someone I love! Wish her all the very best. Airs on ITV @ 9pm.’

Ahead of taking on the role, Kate – who herself was interviewed on the show last year – said: ‘I’ve always loved having the chance to talk to people, both on air and off. 

‘Everyone has a story to tell and the wonderful thing about this show is that you have the airtime to delve into the areas of guests lives that the viewers might not know about already. 

‘It’s also a chance to understand more about the bits we do already know about, both good and bad, and hear it in their own words.’ 

Kate Garraway’s Life Stories continues next Thursday on ITV at 9pm.
