Claudia, who is the daughter of newspaper editor and la télé personality Eve Pollard, 78, mentionné: “I feel lucky for what I do but it’s a job, à droite?

You take pride in it and you want to do well, but when you go home it’s all about, ‘Are we ordering a Pizza or am I making a lasagne?».

“I grew up with a newspaper editor as a mum and she never mentioned it.

She dealt with it and it was invisible to our lives. We would have egg and chips and watch Arsenal but we never knew what she did.

“She would just leave the house and come back in high heels smelling of perfumeshe was amazing.”
