Speaking to BBC on the launch of series ten, the actress said: "Kris Marshall was my first partner in the series so he's very special to me because he helped me a lot.

She added: "He was there for me when I was struggling and a bit scared and he was so nice with me on set and so funny. His French was pretty amazing too. That's why Kris is special in my heart because he was the first."
