How has your journey been so far?
It’s been a rollercoaster I wouldn’t change much but it’s definitely not been the route that many others would have chosen. From leaving the Uk at 21 after my degree which was meant to be a year of fun and modelling to 15 years I am truly grateful for this journey.
How’s the experience been hosting IPL?
Of course it’s exciting as not, two days are the same One day I’m at a stadium hosting the World Cup the next day I’m shouting a song Also I travel between London and Mumbai so I genuinely feel I’m living two different lives.
How do you manage staying fit and healthy?
I love to workout out and keep fit and have a healthy balance. I definitely look after myself but if you see my social media I love to travel read books and try different things. It’s all about balance I think there was an age where I wouldn’t eat much and be at the gym all the time But now I think it’s just about eating healthy and working out and enjoying life.
Spare time is spent with my family and friends and my dog Duke and lots of lovely dinners and lunches Being self employed, not two days are the same so I keep busy with the gym, cooking, reading and spending time with friends.
Have you ever thought about becoming a celebrity when you were a kid?
