Claire previously toldWales Onlinethat she appeared on the show because she was “in the right place at the right time”.

Claire recalled: “I was working in Bannatyne in Cardiff at the time. I'm a therapist but was on reception one day when someone rung and asked if they knew of anyone who wanted to take part in the show. I was like 'yes' and had to apply – I was in the right place at the right time.

“At first I thought it might have been a joke. I had to apply and then I had a phone interview and things and then just after Christmas they got back to me. There were quite a few rounds to get through.”

Claire close her own menu for her hosting night and opted for "prawns on a plank" to start with "steak Americano" for the main. She finished off the eventful evening with a chocolate sundae with a twist.
