    Hi Kes. Your friend sounds lovely. If you would be comfortable and relaxed with her being with you for the call, then of course have her there. Mention it to the interviewer before you start the assessment. 
    I don’t know if your friend will be allowed to speak, but hopefully someone here can advise.
    Good luck hun.

    Your friend really does sound lovely @kes2611, as mentioned above if having your friend there for the call would make you feel more comfortable then go ahead and do that :) 

    I'm concerned that you rarely eat and haven't had a long meal in a while, please take note of the content of the emails we have sent you, and do your best to even eat something small to ensure you keep your energy up :)
