Hayley was had a work placement at ITV, then her break presenting an 80s music show going out to thousands of homes on Saturday nights. She is also a presenter on Love Sport Radio.

Hayley said: 'I work on my mindset every morning, followed by a gym session. Nobody prepares you for the highs, the lows and the rejections, but if you want it enough, you won’t let anything stand in your way.’
