As Dancing With the Stars reaches its grand final this Sunday, Donal O'Donoghue talks to the show's unflappable host Amanda Byram about love, ambition, and family.

“I say that I’m a tough cookie but I also let things affect me more than I should."

The TV presenter opened up about her health and how her relationship with food has changed over the years:

"Now I look back at old photographs and wonder what my problem was. I got so sick of dieting and worrying about my weight, I wrote a blog called ‘My Journey to Health’. The way I thought all the way through my teens and 20's is the way many women think through their whole lives.”
