In a recent interview, Jasmine opened up about all things her, from her job, her marriage and how she’s battled the dreaded coronavirus last year.

But on a more light-hearted note, when asked what she wanted to be when she was younger, Jasmine couldn’t help herself and spoke honestly form the heart.

“I wanted to be a vet and in my 20s I wanted to be a singer,” she admitted.

“I thought, ‘Well if the Spice Girls can’t sing and they can make it, them so can I!'”

But instead, she fell into the property sector and joined the cast of Channel 4 show in 2004.

While thinking back to her younger days, Jasmine also recalled her first TV audition for the job she’s been doing for 17-years.

“To be honest, no one has ever told me why I was selected,” she confessed.

“I had a screen test and I do know they had done 170 other people.”

She remembered that the audition included going out and speaking to people, something she clearly excelled at.

“I’ve done 370 shows now, filming with all sorts if people, who have suffered expectations and budgets,” she continued.

“You have to be able to get on with them and be able to get under their skin to help them.”

While she believes the new episodes of the show have “lifted viewers spirits”, Jasmine, like many, had a difficult 2020.

“I had coronavirus in March before the lockdown. The worst bit I think was the not knowing what it was and what was happening to my body,” she explained to Suffolk Norfolk Life magazine.

“I was ill and worried about my kids incase they caught it, which they did in the end.”

She revealed that white she had all the other symptoms such as coughing and the loss of smell and taste, the scariest one was the breathing difficulties.

“It was excruciatingly painful to yawn or breathe,” she said.

“I was only able to breathe with what it felt like was 20 percent of my lung capacity.”

She explained she had to do a lot of shallow breathing in order to keep the pain at bay during the “emotionally painful year”.

A Place In The Sun airs today at 3pm on Channel 4.
