‘From that moment on there was always more of a pull to get down on all fours and gallop that to walk along on two legs – I would pretend to be a horse at every opportunity.

‘I remember going to my mum and dad’s vegetable patch and nibbling on broccoli flowers, a fennel bush or even a bit of grass – although that was a bit of a struggle to eat.

‘I created horse shoes out of old cork tiles and stuck them on to create horse shoe patterns, and I used to use my mum’s empty face cream pots as hooves.’
