What has Sandi said about Extraordinary Escapes?
Speaking of her new show, the TV presenter said: “When it was suggested that I travel around the UK accompanied by these four brilliant women, I had to double check this was work.
“This year has been a journey of exploration for many of us, and it was a joy to find so many beautiful, quirky and remote bolt-holes around almost every corner.
She added: “And quite honestly, as much as I adore my family, it’s been wonderful just to leave the house.”
