Anneka Rice: Isle of Wight is my favourite place

Television presenter Anneka Rice has stated that the Isle of Wight is her favourite place in the British Isles.

The former Challenge Anneka host explained that she has fond memories of the island from her childhood, when she can recall feeling sick in the car on the way to the Isle of Wight while her father smoked a pipe.

"I've been holidaying there since I was four and I feel I know every rock, pebble and crab," she said in an interview with the Independent.

"As soon as we're on the ferry, I experience a deep sense of wellbeing."

Rice added that her ideal Isle of Wight holiday would include all of her family, as this means she can leave her mobile phone at home and spend time with her boys.

She was one of the most popular stars of British television throughout the 1980s and 1990s, having moved to the BBC to host Treasure Hunt after her spell on Challenge Anneka with Channel 4 came to an end.
