“After living a normal life in the country, I suddenly had to go to meetings in London, meet new people (some of whom were celebrities) and film videos in front of the camera crew (that was a million miles more nerve-wracking than you think that you were only filming in your bedroom by yourself) and suddenly a lot more people stopped me on the street to say hello and take a picture

“In a few weeks I would feel right on top of the world, and in other weeks I would rock back on a train alone and tearfully in fourth place on a train to London to film something”

She added, “The number of times I’ve stood before my own launch events crying and gasping and not being able to go back in (let alone other races)”
