Katherine Ryan: Parental Guidance. Katherine Ryan
Katherine searches for ways to try to feel less guilty about taking on help and trying to free up more time in her schedule to focus on her career.

Further details

Katherine visits her friend Luisa Zissman, and ends up hearing a few home truths, has a consultation with specialist 'fixer nanny' Brenda Hart who advises Katherine and Bobby to try to get Fred's sleep routine under control, and a call to her mum in Canada results in an offer to come over to help with the kids.

Katherine visits the Smith family, who have all four grandparents involved in the childcare so that they can both work to pay the mortgage.

Katherine also chats to fellow comedians London Hughes and Stephen Bailey.
