"People are often surprised to know that I love house music - something with a good beat - and so does [husband] Mike!" she said.

Carole also admits to being a big Jess Glynne fan, adding: "At the moment I get up and dance to Jess Glynne, so the family tease me as I always put her on."

When she's not enjoying house music, Carole runs her own party decorations business, Party Pieces.

"The business has a CEO now, so I have the luxury of being able to focus on new ideas and how to grow, which is always an enjoyable challenge," she explains.

Carole also spoke about being a 'hands on' grandmother.

"I want to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground," she says. "As long as I am able to, that's what I'll be doing. I cook with them, I muck around dancing, we go on bike rides."

Carole says she is a hands on grandmother for all of her grandchildren. George, Charlotte and Louis are pictured here in 2019 (
