The star has been a quizmaster on ITV’s The Chase since 2010 and also hosts the game show Britain’s Brightest Family, as well as its celebrity edition.

She’s known for her stern manner – garnering the nickname Frosty Knickers from presenter Bradley Walsh – and sharp quips.

I never really had friends at school.

But last month, Anne opened up about facing bullies at school in a candid conversation about her younger years.

She featured on Jeremy Vine’s podcast, What Makes Us Human, and discussed struggling to make friends as a child.

Asked if she had an unhappy childhood, Anne explained: “Well I didn’t like it. My poor parents, in their muddled way, were probably doing their best.”

The star said she didn’t really have friends. “I had cousins that I was fond of, [but] they didn’t live near me.”
