Suzi replied, « Yeah, I’m from a tour, if you have something the next day and you have to be in town for it, you have to be in London and you are in Hull, you kinda go up in the car and get off The working hours are totally different « 

Steph went on to share: « It’s funny the sights you see because you see people hammered when you’re there at that point, but you also finish really early

« Sometimes I was done by half past nine and was home for ten hours in my pajamas in bed

The host, who left BBC Breakfast in 2019 after joining as a professional presenter in 2010, added: « I spent most of my time traveling around the country
