The Streatham-born star tends to keep her private life out of the spotlight, but in another interview with the Daily Mail in 2016, Naga spoke about how her husband convinced her to take up the sport.

She started playing golf in 2008, admitting: "Now I'm addicted and play five or six times a week – those are my golf shoes on the floor and on the table are my trophies."
