She told OK!: “I’ve always wanted to act. Acting has always been a big one. I want to do a West End musical as I’ve not done a West End musical yet.

It was just amazing so never say never!

“And more presenting, I want to keep working in television. I’ve been working in TV since I was 12. So I feel like television is home. It feels like home.”
