It was also announced that the groundbreaking podcast – which tackles conversations around cancer with honesty and humour – would continue in Bland’s honour.
James said: “Myself and Lauren are looking forward to getting back in the studio soon and continuing what we started.
“I know Rach is smiling down upon us with pride and will be right with us as we take the podcast into its next phase.”
