"This season, we have widened it to be a platform to discuss topics not just on parenting but also wider family and societal issues with a view to trying to bring about positive change and help those who are seeking help. We have inspirational celebrity and non-celebrity guests who are using their platforms to help bring about positive change in areas that impact families, as our guests. I am overwhelmed by the inspirational and motivating stories I hear on the show and the positive response of our guests, celebrity and non-celebrity, and our viewers," she added.

In the show, Tara talks to guests from all walks of life who are using their celebrity and or other platforms to help bring about positive change in areas that impact families, parents, children and women. The fifth season of the show will air on Star World from December 22.

Each episode will be structured around a theme such as following dreams, special needs and inclusion, health and fitness, kids and sports, and reinvention.

"I am also tremendously grateful to all involved in our show, it being literally like another child to me," said mother of two.
