In this episode we talk to Lead singer from boyband 911 Mr Lee Brennan.

In their five years together, 911 scored ten UK top 10 singles with 10 million singles and 6 million albums sold worldwide. The band announced their split in February 2000 but 12 years later they reunited for the ITV2 reality-documentary series 'The Big Reunion', along with Atomic Kitten, Liberty X, B*Witched, Five and Honeyz. Due to the highly positive reception, the groups went on an arena tour around the UK and Ireland.

Their comeback album Illuminate: The Hits and More was released on 8 September 2013, along with their comeback single "2 Hearts 1 Love". In early 2014, 911 headlined their own UK tour.

Aside from his time in 911, Lee has had to overcome many obstacles in his personal life. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma twice, first aged nine and then again aged 15, of which treatment left him infertile. After 911's split in 2000, Lee continued song writing whilst pursuing an acting career. And on 14 September 2006, Brennan married Lindsay Armaou of Irish girl group B*Witched but they unfortunately split in 2011.

In this episodes we talked about:

  • The formation of 911 and how the bands drive and work ethic helped them achieve some of the biggest goals achievable in the pop world
  • Being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma twice and how this experience has led him to have real perspective and appreciation of life and a growth mindset
  • Why Lee believes when you have a fear, you should feel the fear and do it anyway
  • The pressures of your image, being judged and the dangers of social media.
  • Coping with the loss of identity and purpose after the band ended by seeking professional counselling and reading personal development books and why we all need to regulate our thoughts in a positive way even if we think we’re ok.
  • How gratitude in everyday life and appreciating the smaller things can lead to good things bouncing straight back to you
  • Why you need to be positively selfish and learn to say no to certain situations  
  • How Lee dealt with his divorce to wife Lindsay and his view on endings and being kind to yourself in this situation.
  • And interestingly why you shouldn’t put the pressure on yourself to be happy all day long
