The 56-year-old An­tiques Road­show pre­sen­ter said “in the first week or so I was very anx­ious and fear­ful and wor­ried for my fam­ily”, the mother-of-two told Ra­dio Times.

Bruce felt anx­i­ety about con­tam­i­na­tion while mak­ing cups of tea in the shared BBC news­room kitchen.

“But then I got used to it and as time went on I forced my­self to be­come more Zen,” she said.

Bruce also re­vealed her re­gret at not in­ter­ven­ing on Ques­tion Timed ur­ing a de­bate over Don­ald Trump. Welsh ac­tor John Rhys-Davies ex­claimed “Oh woman” at for­mer Green Part y leader Caro - line Lu­cas and slapped his palms on the ta­ble in the dis­cus­sion last year.
