The British TV presenter, who used to date Declan Donnelly from the British due Ant and Dec, referred to Sir Ben as ‘Popeye the sailor man.’
“We’ve actually competed in a race together, in Lymington,” she told the paper, “though when I say ‘together’, what I mean is that I was observing while Ben and six other sailors did all the hard work.
“There were 100 other boats and I thought the guys were being terribly relaxed, cracking open a couple of beers, until I turned round and saw we were just so far ahead of the rest of the field.”
