Chatting about her return the show, she explained: “I was doing Coast vs Country and then I had kids. I was actually due to go back to A Place In The Sun, I think I was meant to do ten shows or something like that, just before Coast vs Country got commissioned and then that got commissioned and I couldn't do A Place In The Sun

She added that she wanted to take a longer break too, saying: “I'd been on the road an epic amount because I was doing Summer Sun and Winter Sun. I had been on the road a lot so I needed a quick break and then I was due to go back but then Coast vs Country started, so that was the only reason.”

Two really wonderful ladies on today’s show had a really great time although honestly I was so self-conscious the first time back on camera at work since baby number 2 and I was and am still mum bod city but hey the best payoff ever!

We're so glad that Sara is back!

"The babies came with me on this shoot I was still breastfeeding and it was hard work pumping and up feeding at night, but also the best fun! So grateful for the opportunity to take the family with me!”
