Ready to hear some more dilemmas? Charleen and Ellie are ready to answer them! How should you feel about videos of "half-naked" girls appearing on your boyfriend's fyp as a result of his co-worker sending them to him? What should you do if your friends are making no effort to see you anymore? Is it materialistic to want a gift from your other half for your birthday, or should you absolutely expect to get something every year? And is the guy your seeing with someone else and trying to hide it from you?
TikTok sensation, Lauren Whelan is this week's special guest on the podcast. Lauren has 1.6 million followers on TikTok and talks about when she began posting videos online and her first viral video on the platform. She also gives us the inside scoop about the infamous GOAT House, and reveals some TikTok drama she was involved in. Lauren also helps out with your dilemmas this week, alongside Charleen and Ellie. Why is your other half going quiet on text and calls in the lead up to coming home to see you? Should you call it quits with your long-term partner after finding out they've been texting other people? And what should you do or say if you found porn on your boyfriend's phone?
We've got updates! Always keep us posted if we answer your dilemma because we love to hear how your situation is working out! Of course, there's plenty of new dilemmas to help out with too this week. Should you believe the whole "he's not ready for a relationship" when you think he might be showing you otherwise? What do you do if your best friend is making no time or effort with you since getting a boyfriend? And how do you grieve over the loss of a pet?
No, Ellie hasn't gotten married. This week, we've got one of the most special guests we've ever had on the podcast before - Ellie's mam, Mrs Kelly! She spills the beans about Ellie as a child, her most memorable stories of their family, what she thinks of a career as an influencer and the secret to a long-lasting marraige. Mrs Kelly also helps us with some of your dilemmas, including what you should do if you're not really over someone who was never fully yours and should you trust someone with a "billy big bollox" attitude?

What is a thirst trap? What kind of content is it, who posts it and who are they for? Charleen and Ellie discuss in this week's episode, and also reveal whether or not they have ever posted a thirst trap online and if they got their desired outcome from it. But is there also some toxicity in thirst trapping? As well as answering the thirst trapping questions, the girls are answering your dilemmas too. Is it okay for you to tell your friends everything about your partner? Do you keep pursuing a friendship with a someone who is never actively trying to uphold your conversations?

When two podcasts collide! The hilarious Grace Keeling, aka GK Barry from the Saving Grace Podcast is our very special guest this week!

And has your latex-loving boyfriend just become the biggest walking red flag?
Ellie and Sean are answering some extra dilemmas this week! Should you quit the job that you thought was your dream career?

General sale will be happening this Friday, 17th of February, so make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment! This week, the wonderful Sean Phipps co-hosts with Ellie to talk about things that feel illegal, but aren't.

Should you break up with your boyfriend when he's done nothing wrong, but you feel like you need time on your own? Is the boy with the girlfriend really flirting with you? And why is your supposed best friend acting sly and making remarks towards you all of a sudden?
The dilemmas keep coming, and Charleen and Ellie keep helping! On this episode, we give some advice on how to get over your ex who dumped you out of nowhere. Should you confront your friends if you think they are not making an effort to see you when you're living abroad? How do you deal with your in-denial boyfriend who's been looking up girls in lingerie outfits on Instagram? What should you do if your partner if a few chapters ahead of you in life, and you feel like they want you to catch up? And hear some advice for going through a raw breakup.
Do you need to ask someone to be your Valentine? If you're only seeing someone recently, do you get them something for Valentines Day? What are some gift ideas for your significant other to mark the occasion? What is a good date idea? Should you post about it on social media? Or is Valentines just a load of commercial nonsense? Charleen and Ellie are discussing all things Valentines (and Galentines) this week! We are also helping out with your dilemmas in Secrets From The Stalls. This week, it's advice for a girl who's boyfriend got her best friend pregnant, and what do to if your partner is always too tired to have sex?
*Trigger warning: There are mentions of sexual assault in this episode* We've got more updates this week! Of course, there are new dilemmas that Charleen and Ellie are helping you out with too.

This week, we are joined by the lovely and super talented band, New Rules. Nathan, Alec and Ryan talk about the origins of the group, life in the band, song-writing, fan mail, icks, red flags and so much more. You can find them on social media @newrules (or @newrulestweets on Twitter). Charleen and Ellie help out with a dilemma about a "friend" pushing you out of your group, and advice for a girl who found out her boyfriend was cheating on her via an Instagram DM from a random person.
As much as giving advice to your dilemmas, we LOVE hearing updates, and there's three updates today! Disclaimer: one of them may or may not have made Charleen and Ellie cry... This week, the girls are helping out a girl who feels like she's missing out on opportunities because her boyfriend does not want to go on holidays because they are "not worth it". Should you give your ex the time to better himself and get back to the old him, or should you stop romanticising his potential and accept that things will never be the same? And how do you deal with a really bad texter?
This new TikTok trend is "the belief that you can attract good things into your life by asserting that you deserve them and that assuming you are lucky will bring you good fortune". But is it a load of waffle or is it a real thing? Charleen and Ellie talk about 'Lucky Girl Syndrome', how it is practiced and what it can do for you, and we hear some of your opinions on this new manifestation trend. In Secrets From The Stalls, the girls help out with advice for a girl who is with her boyfriend for 5 years, but keeps thinking back to an old fling. How do you bring up the "what are we" conversation to the person you're seeing? And should you reach out to the guy who told you he wanted a relationship with you, but then it turned out that he was in it for the sex?
It's that time of the week, where Charleen and Ellie help out with answering even more of your dilemmas! How do you tell your boyfriend that his mother is too involved in your relationship? Do boys come clean about cheating or do you have to investigate into it? What can you do to open yourself up for a relationship when you're scared of the heartbreak it might bring? And is your personal trainer the person that a medium told you that you would meet?
There's lots of questions that we all have but you don't know who to ask or where to go to find the answers. They are the questions that you might feel awkward or scared to ask, or think that you should already know the answer to, so you don't ask at all. That is what this episode is for! From birth control, tampons, and shaving to first time doing the deed, consider Charleen and Ellie your 'big sisters' to answer your questions! Not only are the girls answering these questions, but, as always, they are also answering your dilemmas in Secrets From The Stalls. What can you do if you think that guys see you as "easy" to get with, and you're not making any real connections with anyone? Should you confront your boyfriend if he's following and storing content from provocative accounts on social media? And is it time to hand in your notice if you're hating your job, but it's keeping you there for experience and money?
