2021 judge Elizabeth Day


Elizabeth Day’s chart-topping podcast, How To Fail, a celebration of the things that haven’t gone right, has seen her credited for ‘revolutionising the way we see failure’ (Stylist). It has inspired two nonfiction books, How To Fail: Everything I’ve Ever Learned From Things Going Wrong (2019) which became a bestseller and Failosophy: A Handbook for When Things Go Wrong (2020). The books have been optioned for TV, with Elizabeth currently writing the scripts. In 2019 Elizabeth’s ‘How to Fail’ live tours attracted sell-out audiences in prestigious venues across the UK.
