The Contact Book with Craig Doyle

The Contact Book is a chat show like no other. Craig Doyle interviews sporting legends about their lives and careers.

As he navigates their highs and lows, he has access to each guest’s contact book and calls up people who have lived through those experiences with them. Craig’s chats with his guests are witty, engaging and enlightening – and while he hears their versions of the stories, he also gets the real inside stories from people who know and love them best. Those with whom they grew up, who trained and played with them and those whose lives they crossed in the sporting world and beyond.

While the guests give access to their contacts they don’t always know exactly who is going to pop up during their interview and what stories they are going to tell. The Contact Book with Craig Doyle is a great listen as we get the insight into these sporting legends and their stories – from all sides.

Episode 4: Maggie Alphonsi

World Cup-winning legend, Maggie Alphonsi MBE is one of the best-known names in women’s international rugby. “Maggie the Machine” captained England with 74 caps, scored 28 tries and helped England win seven consecutive Six Nations crowns and the 2014 World Cup Final. A formidable force on the pitch, she hands over her phone to Craig Doyle who opens up her contact book to speak to those who know her best. In an enlightening and personal interview, Maggie reveals her struggles as a child and how she overcame a serious physical disability to become one of the world’s top rugby players. Those closest to her tell their part in her journey, which is both moving and at times hilarious.
