She said: “Look I got really het up about the dress as poor Olly had to deal with. There was a lot of pressure on it, which Helen felt and Trixie felt in turn.

“So yeah, it was tricky thing to find. And now we’ve done it, I’m thinking: ‘Oh I would have – maybe we should have done that. And you know, there was a lot of pressure surrounding it.’
