Students aged nine to 18 quizzed TV presenter Fiona Bruce as she appeared in an interview over Zoom.

The BBC presenter was asked a wide range of questions by students in The Priory Learning Trust.

Olivia Finch, aged 16, head girl of Worle Community School Academy, hosted the one-hour interview with questions on lockdown, journalism, careers, and more.

Fiona told the students how she turned down Strictly Come Dancing.

She said: “Strictly is a great show but you would have to really love it to want to put your self through it.

“It is a career move generally, not for everybody but a lot of people do it because they really love Strictly and really love to ballroom dance. I don’t want to ballroom dance so that is not a driver for me.

"It was an absolute delight to meet the students who had clearly put a lot of thought into their questions. A few of them really put me on the spot.

“And Olivia masterfully chaired it all with the ease of a professional. It was all very impressive and encouraging for the future of journalism.”
