Imagine you were the alternative Prime Minister. What would you change if you ran the country?

This week’s guest describes herself as the kid who never gave up on the idea of a fair, perfect world and she’s on a mission to challenge societal constructs in her fight for freedom and democracy.

Natalie Balmain is a campaigner, designer and broadcaster, and the winner of Channel 4’s political reality game show, Make Me Prime Minister.  But where did she come from, what led her to compete and what impact did winning the show have on her political mission?

Listen in to find out how her determination to create a place for normal people in politics is transforming her life on her journey to become less Malcolm X and more Dr King!

This episode is for women who want to boost their self esteem, take more risk, and increase their sphere of influence.


Natalie Balmain is a campaigner, designer and broadcaster, with a special interest in the role of capitalism in democracy, and how wealth-based policy influencing shapes the fabric of society. She lives in Manchester with her rescue dog Tito, and spends her free time advocating for awareness of Type 1 Diabetes and ADHD, both of which she lives with herself. Natalie first came to the media's attention in 2017 when she launched a clothing range for women living with Type 1 Diabetes, that allowed them to do their injections or wear their insulin pumps more easily. She has had over 3.5million views on the BBC and counts Barack Obama and Tom Cruise amongst her Twitter followers! In 2022, Natalie took part in the first ever series of 'Make Me Prime Minister' on Channel 4, and was crowned 'Britain's Alternative Prime Minister' after winning the show!
