Chatting about the beginning of her career to the BBC, she said: "I was gently nudged in the direction of the antique trade and auction houses by my dad, who thought that I'd be well-suited to the environment. Although I'd never normally admit it, he was absolutely right!"

She added that if she hadn't become an antique expert, she might have taken a very different career path, explaining: "My plan was always to follow in my parents' footsteps and open a restaurant. If I'm honest, I'm not ruling it out as a sideline... there's nothing quite like catering to keep you on your toes!"

Although she keeps her relationship private, Natasha did mention Joe in a BBC interview, saying: "My partner and I are guilty of eating out too much - Glasgow has so many great restaurants, too much of my spare time is spent eating delicious food and not enough time is spent working it off in the gym."
