I learnt that there isn’t a limitless supply of money.My parents were really sensible with money and I remember my mum always saying to me, “spend a third, save a third and put another third away for tax”, and I’ve always done that.I grew up on a council estate with a father who worked in a factory and a mother who was a housewife, so money was tight.We weren’t like Bob Cratchit but we didn’t have an awful lot of disposable income, so I learnt from a very early age about sticking to a budget.I never did Vogue, I never did the kind of high-end stuff, I was more of a commercial girl, so between £800 and £1,000 a day was my average wage modelling.Was the move into television a financial step up or down? TV work can pay anything from £2,000 to £3,000 a day but it all depends on who you’re working for and what the budget is. You combined your old job with your new job to become the presenter of A Place in the Sun.

What worries me about society nowadays is that we’re all becoming obsessed with this kind of one-upmanship and keeping up with the Joneses, but perhaps the recession is making people re-prioritise things.It’s no good wearing Diane von Furstenberg dresses because they get covered in yogurt. But I do get quite itchy and twitchy if I don’t have savings.If I have a depleted savings account I get a little bit nervous.It was a huge leap of faith and it was an incredibly, incredibly scary thing to me but it’s opened so many doors.And the decision that had the most negative impact? I got divorced nearly 10 years ago and that really took a chunk out.
