‘We chose the fur­ni­ture in the sit­ting room our­selves. It was driven by the dis­cov­ery of this fab­u­lous ceil­ing light, from Stock­tons. It comes in var­i­ous sizes and this is the big­gest. We were told that only us and the UGG store in Lon­don had gone for this one! We wanted a cir­cu­lar sofa to go un­der­neath, which we found at Den Liv­ing. It only came in two pieces though, so we had the cen­tre piece made to fit.

‘Then we called in a friend, Ku­nal Tre­han of Touched In­te­ri­ors, to help with the rest. I have known Ku­nal for a lit­tle while and knew he just to­tally un­der­stood our style and our taste. It’s quite hard to find a de­signer you can re­ally gel with!

‘It’s been an ab­so­lute labour of love, and it’s not fin­ished yet. We have the mas­ter bath­room and the me­dia room to com­plete next.’

The liv­ing room is rather glo­ri­ous, it must be said. From the

“It’s been an ab­so­lute labour of love - and it’s not fin­ished yet!”

a gen­eral anaes­thetic for a child un­der nine is for teeth ex­trac­tion, and the mor­tal­ity rate for a child in gen­eral anaes­the­sia is 1:100,000?

It’s all down to aware­ness – hid­den sug­ars in foods and drinks, even ‘healthy’ snacks like yo­ghurts and smooth­ies can be so bad for your teeth.

‘For me this is such an im­por­tant is­sue and I was so grate­ful that the pro­duc­ers of Real Housewives gave me the op­por­tu­nity to get this across, when they filmed a spe­cial chil­dren’s clinic I held at my St He­lens prac­tice this sum­mer.’

The show films for 12 weeks at a time, so Hanna and Martin are cur­rently on a break un­til the New Year, but that doesn’t mean any down­time for the cou­ple, they have a wed­ding to plan and a home to fin­ish – and oh yes, Hanna has just taken own­er­ship of her own den­tal clinic, Kiln Lane Den­tal, in St He­lens.

‘I dreamed of own­ing my own den­tal prac­tice even when I was at uni­ver­sity,’ she says. ‘I worked there for three years and then when the owner de­cided to re­tire, I went for it! It’s been mad, this sum­mer, and I couldn’t have done it with­out the sup­port of the won­der­ful team there.’

Now I un­der­stand what the term power-cou­ple means; these two hard-work­ing and ded­i­cated pro­fes­sion­als are the per­fect ex­am­ple of what can be achieved when am­bi­tion and en­ergy co­in­cide – so very Cheshire!
