From speaking to a mother who is a refugee from Syria to a couple who live and sail around the world on a boat, Kate revealed that her own happy place is her home in Wales.

Kate moved to Wales in 2007 with her husband, Ludo Graham and they now own a farm together. The star said she always wanted to live in Wales, so when her husband got the opportunity to work in Cardiff for a year, they both jumped at the opportunity.

The star added: "My heart longs for Wales when I'm away from there for too long."

In the talk the star also touched on her travel ventures and how important it's to see the world.

The presenter encouraged the audience to see all the places they want to see and added: "Life can throw curveballs at you, so don't wait wait, just go."

Kate's inspiring book Where the Hearth Is: Stories of home is available to buy now.
