Lauren Laverne, Frankie Bridge, Frank Bruno, and Big Narstie will be manning the Zopa FeelGood Hotline from midday, offering a feel-good natter to anyone who gives them a call.

The celebs have been picked for their boundless positivity, and it’s being hoped that they’ll bring some wit and humour to this (probably quite grey) hump-day afternoon.

Of course, this week started with Blue Monday - often referred to as the most depressing day of the year - so we’re probably all in need of a bit of a boost.

The stunt as being run by Zopa, a peer-to-peer lender that has received its banking license in December 2018.

The celebs will be manning the phones alongside Zopa’s regular customer service team, and anyone can give them a call for a dose of feel good.

Callers can also choose to get their conversation recorded and sent to them as a personalised clip to share on social media (for bragging rights, of course!)

Ahead of this afternoon, the celebs have been sharing the things that make them feel good.

Broadcaster Lauren Laverne says: "I’m always happy to spread a little positivity and looking forward to chatting to callers. And what makes me feel good? Music, of course, but also spending time outdoors in performance fabrics, and any time spent with my family."

Frankie Bridge named “having a good old chat with my girls” as the thing that makes her happiest.

Clare Gambardella, Chief Customer Officer at Zopa, says: “The team is at the forefront of making sure that our customers feel good about our products, so for January we wanted to add an extra sprinkle of positivity to proceedings. We think that our star-filled FeelGood hotline will do just that.

“Frank Bruno, Lauren Laverne, Big Narstie and Frankie Bridge will all become honorary Zopians for the day.”

The Zopa FeelGood Hotline will be open from 12pm to 4pm on Wednesday 23rd January 2019. Call 020 3954 1844 to chat to Lauren, Frankie, Frank or Narstie.
