Pouring a brown liquid into the simmering pan, she continued: "2 x Oxo cubes (3 if you like it really meaty!) and my second secret ingredient...a teaspoon of coffee granules!"

Eamonn Holmes' wife opened up about her love of cooking during an interview with HELLO! in 2018. While talking about her ideal day off work, she said: "I am very much a home bird and I don't get to spend as much time at home as I would like to because of work (which I love) so when I have some time off it's really spending time with family and being at home."

She added: "I love cooking, it's my hobby and I find it very relaxing. There will be times when I am making roast dinner and we have family coming around, while Jack and Eamonn are watching the football. So spending time with family and friends really, that time is very precious to me."
