Season 1 of Rejected ends with a classic story of rejection, with a big political twist: a man decides to divorce his wife in order to be with the woman he loves, and ends up punished for it by the Communist Party. That man is my father, and this is his story.
Did you know that December 11 is the busiest day of the year for rejection? I took it upon myself to find out what it is about Christmas that breaks up our relationships. To get to the bottom of this, I spoke to two amazing therapists and the CEO of Relate, UK’s only charity that offers relationship counselling.

Listen to a hilarious conversation with creative directors Rae and Craig and find out what rejection has taught them in their personal and professional lives.
