Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am a mother, wife and lady in business. I am a born and bred Jersey girl - my family are all Jersey-born,, even back to my great grandparents and beyond. I have lived in Jersey my whole life apart from two years for university and even then I found a way to travel home weekly. I married my childhood sweetheart who I have been with since I was 17-years-old. I am the mother of two beautiful boys who are now two and three and they are my world. Family is everything to me and living such a busy life it doesn’t leave much time for anything else.

How would your friends and family describe you?
Loyal, kind, caring, fun and loving. However, if people are not the same in return, then they are cut out. Period. I have always been a tough cookie but having children has definitely softened me and changed my approach to life.

How did it feel to be asked to be in The Real Housewives of Jersey?
It all happened so quickly, I almost didn’t have time for it to sink in. I like to experience new things and knew I would love a new project. I wanted to turn the lockdown year into something positive and hoped it could potentially lead to some really exciting things for me and my family.

How did your family/friends react when they found out about the show?
Some ran a mile and others were excited. All my immediate family were very supportive of my
decision. There were also a lot of warnings from close friends but sometimes you have to go out your comfort zone to see what opportunities are on the horizon.

What can we look forward to from you this season?
Having lots of fun and giving everything a go, 100%. My honesty, consistency and dealing with situations head on.

What do you think you bring to the show that no one else does?
I am the only Jersey-born and bred housewife. I am the youngest housewife by about 15 years, and we are a self-made, hardworking, young family.

Who would you say you’re closest to in the cast and why?
I got on with nearly everyone but I spent the most time with Hedi and Tessa and had a lot in
common with them. They are both hard working, down to earth family ladies and our life morals are similar.

Do you watch any of the other Real Housewives series? If so, which other series do you like and who is your favourite Housewife from the whole franchise?
I sure do, Beverly Hills is Erika and Cheshire are Rachel or Tanya.

What do you think it means to be a Real Housewife and part of The Real Housewives brand?
OMG to stay at home, have lunch and drink champagne - that said I wouldn’t know as I’m most certainly not a housewife in the more traditional sense. I’ve hopefully shown that a housewife can be someone who looks after their family and home, but also goes out and enjoys working and running a business. Women can have both, work and family, and I really believe in that.
