MHAIRI Black has opened up about the imposter syndrome she has experienced in Westminster in a new BBC show.

Black, the SNP's deputy leader in the Commons and MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South, announced on social media that she would be featuring in an episode of the BBC's documentary series Imposter Syndrome.

The episode, which became available on BBC iPlayer on December 15, looks at how Black (below) deals with imposter syndrome in political life.

The National:

The description reads: "Mhairi Black is used to being an outsider. Growing up gay in a Catholic school, getting elected to parliament aged just 20 and believing passionately in Scottish independence, Mhairi has never let her differences stop her using her voice."

When elected to Westminster, Black was the youngest MP in the House of Commons.

Black announced she would be stepping down from her role as MP in the next general election, but did not say whether she had any plans for the future.

In a post on Twitter/X, Black said: "Over this festive period, I plan to spam you all with clips from a new series on 'Imposter Syndrome' I was grateful to take part in."

Black shared a clip from the episode where she talks about entering Westminster for the first time.

In the clip, Black says: "I found myself down in Westminster and, you know, there's Winston Churchill's grandson sitting across, there's David Cameron in the flesh, and all this.

" I just remember feeling like, 'Ooh, this is...', again, you know, I started to feel the pressure a wee bit.

"Very quickly, though, I started to let go of that and realised, 'Oh, nobody knows what they're doing in here? Right, ok."

The episode is currently available on BBC iPlayer for a year.
