Josie, who was diagnosed with breast cancer but is now cancer-free, had the most incredible anecdote from her time in the race, which she wanted to share with listeners.
However Naga interrupted her and said: “Can I just say one thing before you say this, I’m warning my listeners now… I read this, this morning and I cried on the way to work.
“It’s beautiful, it’s beautiful, sorry carry on Josie,” she added.
“She said, ‘I had Stage 4 cancer, they thought I was a goner.
“I ran all the way through my treatment, and look at me now and we had a little… she said, ‘Go on keep going, you can do it’.
“I was so inspired by her and she was so lovely. She ran on and I kind of got my mojo back and I ran on.”
Josie continued: “At the final turn of the race she had waited for me. She said, ‘Stop a sec, I want to talk to you,’ and I said, ‘What is it?’
“And she said, ‘When I was going through my absolute lowest ebb I was in a café, near the hospital and I was feeling wretched, and this woman, this stranger across the café came over to me and she said, ‘Listen I know what you are going through, I’ve been there, and I just want you to know to have hope because your life will be even better at the other side of cancer’.
“This woman in the café had taken off a little butterfly necklace, which she had given to this runner and said, ‘This is a little butterfly of hope, and I want you to wear it and know your life will be better than ever on the other side of cancer’.

“’Just know you are going to be fine,’” she finished.
Josie has now released The Cancer Ladies’ Running book which details her experience with the disease and how she found hope and friendship through running.
Elsewhere, Naga has been keeping her fans entertained on social media after she revealed how a supermarket assistant had turned her away from buying a bottle of wine.
Naga typed in view of her 254,000 followers: “Am winning at life in a small way this morning…
“Just been refused to be sold a bottle of wine at the local supermarket by the lovely lady at the till because I had no I.D. YES!”
Fellow BBC host Sophie Raworth, 52, said she was also recently asked for a form of identification while trying to purchase alcohol.
She responded: “I got ‘carded’ recently to see if I was over 25 in a supermarket. I was wearing a mask and a hat to be fair. But still.”
