Speaking to The Mirror she said: ‘When I was four to seven we lived on council estates. I remember going to a store and not being able to pick out an extra loaf of bread.

‘Because we had nothing, we had to be cost conscious. I always knew the value of a pound.’

She added: ‘I will never, ever let go of that house. It was tiny, but I want to keep it as a reminder.’
