Tell us a bit about yourself.
I grew up in Australia, lived in Sydney and then moved to London for modelling work 19 years ago. I met my husband Dan while we were both working there and the rest is history. We moved to Jersey just over five years ago just after we had our second child. I’m into healthy living, exercise and I’m pretty down to earth but also have a rebellious streak!

How would your friends and family describe you?
I’m 50% chilled and 50% firecracker - it depends which side of the bed I get out on. I love having a good time and I’m almost normally last person standing at a party. If you obey all the rules, you’ll miss all the fun!

What brought you to the island?
We moved from London about six years ago, initially we planned to be here for 12-18 months - here we are five years later! I grew up on the beaches of Australia and so leaving behind the hustle and bustle for the beach BBQ felt very natural for me. We came for my husband’s work but we stayed for the lifestyle.

How did it feel to be asked to be in The Real Housewives of Jersey?
It’s a huge privilege to be asked to be part of the original cast members for Housewives of Jersey. It certainly spiced up 2020 for me!

How did your family/friends react when they found out about the show?
Jersey is such a small place that I think some people were a little apprehensive about the show and especially the drama. I have some amazing friends who are fully behind me in whatever I do and I have no regrets. You never do you a whole lot unless you are brave enough to try.

What can we look forward to from you this season?
I stopped modelling to have my two girls, you can follow me through my journey from housewife back to cracking back into the modelling scene. Never say never, anything is possible!

What has been your favourite thing about being a Housewife?
It's been great to properly get to know the other Housewives and watch us come together as a group whilst also getting up to some mischief. It is very empowering to be able to have a platform to showcase our home to the rest of the world.

What do you think you bring to the show that no one else does?
I grew up in Australia, modelled and lived in Sydney, danced professionally in Japan, moved to London and now live in Jersey. I’ve had some amazing experiences in my life, and I think I’ll bring an international vibe to the show and also a bit of worldliness!

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?
My favourite character from Real Housewives of Cheshire would probably be Tanya. She seems quite down to earth but also has a sharp sense of humour.

What do you think it means to be a Real Housewife and part of The Real Housewives brand?
I think given everything that has happened in 2020 people need light hearted entertainment in their lives more than ever. The Real Housewives brand is a great mix of glitz, glam, laughs and a dash of drama. It is just the medicine that we all need as we head into the dark winter nights around Christmas. I’m so proud to be involved in the brand, being one of the original Housewives of Jersey and bringing it to the shores of this beautiful island.
