Brief Encounters by Pandora Sykes

A new series where I dive into the drawers (quite literally) of writers of note.

For the second instalment in the series, I got up close and personal with Candice Brathwaite, a writer, broadcaster and fashion personality, who has written several brilliant books including I Am Not Your Baby Mother and is a regular presenter on Lorraine. As anyone who follows Candice on social media will know, she is honest to a T. If anyone can make their knicker drawer sound entertaining, it’s Candice.

"My nails are only red and my knickers are only black cotton, or black lace.

I want them up to my neck - and black. My knicker drawer is like a funeral."
