The presenters have been close pals for decades
But Edith – who has been married to Editors frontman Tom Smith since 2013 – admitted that snaps of her and Cat leaving a bar together once sparked rumours they were more than just friends.
Appearing on Angela Scanlon’s Thanks A Million podcast, Edith said: “Photographs of us kind of holding each other up, coming out of the Met bar or whatever was because we were p****d it wasn’t because we were like, licking each other’s faces off!
“And it was like, ‘Oh, Cat and Edith are in a lesbian relationship’.”
Edith confessed that her and Cat’s show Roadtripping, which saw them travel across the US together, came about after watching Thelma & Louise together.
She said: “We came up with the idea [while] watching Thelma and Louise one night with a bottle of wine going, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to do a show like this?'”
And despite the romantic rumours being her and Cat – happily married to fellow presenter Patrick Kielty – being just that, Edith insists they have a lot of love for each other.
She added: “We were really good mates, and we are really good mates still.
“We are in love, but as friends kind of thing, It’s so bizarre.”
Edith and Tom, 40, have been together since 2005 and share two children, Rudy and Spike.
Meanwhile Cat and Patrick tied the knot in 2012 and are parents to Milo, six, and James, three.
Edith and Cat are teaming up once again – this time for a new podcast, Friends Will Be Friends.
Announcing the news on social media, Cat wrote: “The secret’s out… We’ve got a brand new @bbcradio2 podcast @edibow!!
“Each week we’ll be chatting to a celebrity and their best mate to find out the stories behind their friendship.
“I’m so excited for you to hear it: listen now on @bbcsounds!”
