Season 1, Episode 5,   Feb 19, 2021, 12:05 AM

On this episode, Charlotte is speaking to Carmel Jacob. Carmel was brought up by her Gran in Edinburgh and as a child, she developed a love for wrestling. For Carmel, wrestling was a form of escapism, something that she could use to “concur the world”. As her career progressed, Carmel became known as the Pipebomb Princess. Her blunt, no nonsense approach made it clear to her opponents that they should expect the fight of their lives. This saw her become the ICW Women's Champion and the first inductee of the ICW Hall of Fame. Carmel's unpredictable and determined approach did not end with her wrestling career. She swapped her wrestling boots for university books, training as an Educational Psychologist, where she now supports Care Experienced children and young people to navigate the same care system, she too, experienced.
