Over the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to appear on BBC Wales!
My MBE was in a lot of the Welsh press, so I was asked to be a guest on the Jamie and Louise Show which is the breakfast show. Thankfully the show is English-speaking as although I was born in Wales (and my mother still lives over in the west), I don’t speak Welsh. Did you know only 20% of the Welsh actually speak their native language?
Anyway, the first time I was interviewed I talked about my Welsh heritage and how this influenced the growth of my business, and about how my business actually started which brought back many nostalgic memories!
I was asked to come back and chat more to Jamie and Louise, although I’ve never met them as while they record the show in Cardiff, I’m in a small recording room in BBC studios in West London – just me and the microphone and a man waving at me through the glass. Quite a bizarre experience! Although if the presenters do feel like popping over to Elder Street for a visit I would love to show him around the house – I could even fit Jamie for a new suit!
I’ll let you know when I’m on the show next….
