Talking about the pandemic, she said: “You have to be careful what you wish for.

“After 18 months of being curtailed and living in this weird place, I think it makes you want to grasp the nettles that bit more. Everyone said: ‘After this no one will ever want to go out again.’ But it’s the opposite.”

Now I think, seize the day.

The Yorkshire Shepherdess went on to explain how the pandemic has made her want to experience more.

She said: “In the past, if it was a rainy autumn day, I would think: I don’t really want to go out for a ride on the horse. Now I think: seize the day.”
