Question Time host speaks of her ‘anxiety’
Question Time host Fio - na Bruce has revealed she became “very anxious” in lockdown – and that she regrets not “shutting down” a Lord Of The Rings star.
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.
