"It's not good news I'm afraid, Rachel, I'm sorry to have to tell you, you have cancer." It was exactly 11.30 when my doctor called me through. That sentence is all I remember about the appointment... One year later and I am loving life! I have not let cancer define me and I am finally getting my life back on track!

Walking around London this week, you'd be forgiven for thinking half the capital had been taken over by zombies, with tourists and locals alike standing stock still, gazing upwards with mouths agog. The reason? Not that strange orb of light in the sky we'd half forgotten even existed, but the tiny moving dots making their way up the Shard. On Thursday at 4.30am, six women from Greenpeace set out with a mission to climb London's latest addition to the skyline, with the sole intention of highlighting Shell's plans to drill in the Arctic...

Young people aren't work shy, they just need the experience, training and direction to get the jobs they're fighting for. Use everything at your disposal, nothing is destined or fated - that's naïve thinking - but make sure you stack the deck in your favour. Let employers know exactly what you can do, and grab every opportunity.

Yes, the figure is staggering and unacceptable. But what really bothers me is a nagging feeling that the longer this huge number is tossed around, the more normal it will seem - like part of the landscape.

Last Wednesday, a grotesque large-scale picture of Margaret Thatcher appeared. Coloured purple with blank eyes, skulls for earrings and a thread of drool leaking from the mouth, it stood three metres tall against a background of flames.

We know how much our listeners like to see behind the scenes and get exclusive backstage access, so we are aiming to open up what Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra do across the entire month. The relationship between us and our audience feels close than it ever has. They have access to the inner thoughts of our DJ's via Twitter. They can often get to watch, as well as listen to, our regular output. So the challenge for the month is how to bring them even closer. The centrepiece of our Access All Areas activity has rapidly become Radio 1's first ever intake of interns.

How It Feels to Be the First Female Host of Radio 1's Official Chart

I vividly remember the moment I found out - I thought they'd called me into Radio 1 to fire me/ I was sitting on the floor outside the office with a box of chips, preparing with comfort food, ever the pessimist, mentally preparing myself for rejection and entirely unaware of what was coming my way.
