Although Anneka prefers to keep her son’s away from the public eye.

Back in 1995, Anneka stepped away from her career in the spotlight to raise her sons.

Anneka spoke of her decision to take time away from TV to Lorraine last year where she said: “I went into the BBC, Challenge Anneka was seven o’clock on a Saturday night.

“I just went in and said ‘you know that’s it I’m just going to take a sabbatical’.

“They were really good they were a bit upset because obviously, it was pulling in big ratings and I just sort of disappeared.

“Then I really got into to it I went to art college, and I just enjoyed being out of that buzz and limelight.”

Talking of her children, she added: “The thing about the programmes I did they weren’t programmes where you’re in a nice cosy studio.

“My kids grew up trailing around the country with me doing Challenge Anneka sitting in the buggy.

Back in April, Anneka spoke of how she was living with her sons during lockdown.

She explained to the Telegraph: “I’m now living in a house with my grown-up children and we have formed a new community and, although we are all working and it’s a very industrious household, we are also doing things collectively.

“I’m listening to FKA Twigs, which I wouldn’t have done before, and I have introduced them to the BBC World Service, where I started my career.

“My obsession with world news has never left me and I love listening to programmes like Science in Action and Outlook.”
