I am originally from Abergele but moved down to the South ten years ago having formed the group Eden!!
I thoroughly enjoy working on children's programmes like Hotel Eddie, Crafwr and Rhaglen Wirionach Fyth and have also presented programmes such as Noc Noc, Sul y Ffôn, Cerdyn Post and Mardi Gras. Casa Dudley however is the first programme I have presented since I became a Mum to Anni who's six years old and Efan who is four.
It has been an unforgettable experience! I had a wonderful time. Even though we worked incredibly hard in the heat we also had buckets of fun.
The location was incredible and we received such a warm welcome from Isabelle and Pedro. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the competitors, all twelve in Llandrillo as well as the eight that came to Spain were such likeable characters, easy going and plenty of fun - making my job as a presenter that much easier!
The production team created an environment which made it easy and fun to work for me and therefore made the experience far more special.
I would never dare to call myself a chef but I do try to cook healthy food full of fresh ingredients.
My main downfall would be my lack of organisation (which unfortunately does not only come into play in the kitchen!) and I am therefore, regrettably so, rather repetitive in my cooking as supposed to venturing into the unknown.
I have tried new recipes since Casa Dudley! Having spent time with contestants, experts and members of the production team who have such a passion for food I felt ashamed of my dinner table efforts.
I can't say that my family come home to a three course gourmet dinner every night but I have been enjoying making more of an effort. I remain incredibly unorganised (that will never change) but through trying new recipes and tasting the fruits of my hard work, my confidence is growing ... however not enough to cook Mr Newbery a meal ... not yet anyway!
