She said: "Well it wasn't true so, honestly, I always think, 'Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind'.

She revealed the reason the photo was so special to her was because it was her career highlight.

She explained: "It's a picture of me as Mary Poppins. It even beats me in the jungle, like the highlight of my working life. 

"To do the Saturday Night Takeaway finale in Disney World, honestly, was my dream. So every morning when I wake up and see that photo, I'm like, 'I'm living my dream'."
