With ambitions of art school, no television in the family home and a grandfather trading in circus horses, a life on the stage wasn't an obvious career path for Alison Peebles.

Priest, columnist and broadcaster, the Reverend Giles Fraser, hit the headlines in 2011 after resigning from St Paul's Cathedral over the church's response to the Occupy London protest. Demonstrators had gathered in the City of London, outside St Paul's, to protest against economic inequality and perceived corporate greed and feelings ran high over attempts to remove them from the site. Giles talks to Ricky about growing up, about being a "failed atheist" and challenging the powers-that-be.
