The presenter added: "We all lead such busy lives, but we try to get away to Cornwall together every year (these photos were taken a few years apart).

"With partners and grandchildren, there are quite a few of us, so it's absolutely lovely to be able to enjoy precious time in each other's company. Nothing better than a @thechoughbakery pasty on the beach! Looking forward to the day that we'll all be allowed to get together again."

Suzie Fletcher

Equestrian-loving Suzie is an expert in leather and saddles and joined her brother on the show after the sad passing of her husband, something which she says got her "through some very dark days". 

Before returning to the UK, she lived in America for 22 years with her husband up until his tragic passing in 2013 from pancreatic cancer. While Suzie does not have any children of her own, she's an aunt of four nieces and one nephew through her brother Steve!
