How I eat

At work, my go-to is por­ridge – I’ve had to ease it into my life to be health­ier. I have it with chia seeds and sul­tanas. I could eat boiled eggs with white pep­per ev­ery day; I love them. At home, I boil them while I’m in the shower, and eat them on my way to the golf course – I’m a keen am­a­teur golfer with a hand­i­cap of 8. I drink de­caf black cof­fee – on the show I have one ev­ery hour.

If I’m play­ing golf, I tend just to grab a ba­nana, some­times a veg­etable soup. At work, I’ll go to the gym then get tuna dragon rolls from Itsu, or prawns and cala­mari tan­doori from M&S. Lunch is just fuel; there’s no el­e­gance to it.

I don’t re­ally snack: if it’s put in front of me, I will eat it all. I love dark choco­late and peanut-but­ter M&Ms. To drink, herbal teas. And I’m par­tial to a lovely glass of fizz.

Din­ner is a dif­fer­ent story. I love a sit-down din­ner, and plan ahead. I’m fussy about prove­nance, and por­tion con­trol is dif­fi­cult. I eat more than my hus­band and he’s 5ft 11in. I can’t bear if some­one has more food than me ... I don’t know why. I love cook­ing and I’m good at it – I tend to do big, one-pot meals, so I can talk to my friends and not flap around the room.
