I was so shocked and excited to be nominated for a BAFTA for ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ earlier this year.
Filming the show has been such a fantastic experience, I’m so lucky to be able to experience so many fabulous cruises. The nomination was the icing on the cake!
The BAFTA’s were on Sunday 13th May, just a day before filming started on ‘Jane McDonald and Friends’, so there was a point where I wasn’t even sure I was going to be able to make it! In fact I was so busy in the weeks before for the first time ever I had to have help from a stylist to find a dress!
On the evening itself I was looking forward to a really good night out, meeting the stars of shows I admire, but I never expected to actually win a BAFTA! It was the most amazing night and I am beyond thrilled to have won.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Channel 5 and to all the people who work so hard to make ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ and of course to everyone who watches the show. I’m so pleased it brings such pleasure to so many.
