Well, it turns out that her great-great-great-grandfather was a WWI hero, who fought in one of the key battles of the conflict.

She’ll also discover that she’s linked to another person who’s appeared in the media in recent years. Hmmm… who could that be?

At the time, she said: ‘I always had admiration for what the guys do out here, but seeing them here at work is awe-inspiring.

‘I’m delighted to be here to recognise all the hard work they do. Every one of them is a hero in my book.’

We’re sure she’s added her great-great-great-grandfather to that book now.
