moment as phase one, I had great help from the Watertsone Homes team and Sunrise Interiors. I am very pleased with all the furniture, most of which was supplied by Designer Sofas Direct Brynmenyn, a local business that is run by friends and family. But I’m looking forward to phase two. I’m taking a little break from it all at the moment, getting the feel for it as a home and then I’ll be putting more of my stamp on the house with more furniture and paintings.

Exercise and training features heavily in your life too, tell us why? I’m recovering at the moment from an operation on my foot, so I’m stuck not being able to exercise, but I love running and the bike. I may not be able to partake in any big runs again, so I’m glad that I ticked the London and New York marathon box before I had the setback. We like to merge a holiday and an activity at the same time, so the Rock and Roll half marathon in Las Vegas last year was quite the treat. Next year Marc will take part in the Prostate Cymru Ride from Nice to Rome, so I might tag along to support and enjoy the (car) ride!

generation to generation.” Mel said: “It means so much to us as a family that Beth and Will are working with Marc, it really is in the blood. The doll’s house that Beth’s great grandfather, Jack

Jehu built is such a lovely way to remind us of the history, as he built that when she was born, calling it Ogmore House, a name that will stay with us, so this location really is in our blood too.”
