“I don’t think I do, but it is very flattering!” she continued.

Fiona also revealed that she’s set to be reunited with husband, Simon Cotton, after they were married last November.

She told the newspaper that they communicated via FaceTime, but it was ‘hard’ and that she ‘missed him’.

Fiona also added that the couple were ready for the ‘baby phase’.
