My favourite Hey Girls product is… Our bamboo and corn starch pads. Not that I don’t adore all of our products, but these beautiful plastic-free sustainable beauties were the first product we created, so have a special place in my heart. Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing sustainable crops – anything that’s good enough for pandas, right! 

My fun fact is… I won a Blue Peter badge for my Road Safety Poster when I was 9 years old.

My fun fact is… I might have been a familiar face on TV if I’d taken up the offer of a job to be an extra in Eastenders. I would have been in The Queen Vic sitting next to Phil if it hadn’t have clashed with my Uni Degree final exams. Oh, and I gave birth on Christmas Day!
