Since becoming a BBC breakfast presenter I have been paid four-figure sums for doing hour-long speeches for associations and at awards dinners. That has been an eye-opener. I am surprised by how much people are willing to pay TV celebrities to do that kind of stuff.

I always say I’m more of a food writer than a TV presenter, because that’s what I’m trained in, that’s what I spend most of my year doing. TV is about performance and I’ve never had any training.
