She said: “You have been given one life, and you decide what to do with it. You can literally go in any direction.

“But technically what I’m saying is correct. We are doing, ”the TV presenter continued.
“I understand that we all have different backgrounds, we are all raised differently, and we have different financial situations, but I really think that if you want something enough, you can achieve it.
