“There’s just nothing better than a Scottish breakfast, it’s just delicious and has an array of flavours.”

Karen said that ‘Yorkshire tea is a specific tea that she is loyal to’ and reminds her of ‘home’.

For her second course, Karen chose doughboys and mince which her mum used to make her as a youngster.She said: “This dish tastes like home to me and I don’t think there is anything better in the world than doughboys.”

Karen chose haggis, neeps and tatties with a Yorkshire pudding for her final course of the day.

When talking about her love for haggis, she said: “Haggis is the greatest, and most people make fun of it because they think it is disgusting for traditionally being cooked in a sheep’s stomach, but it’s not anymore and it’s just an excellent Scottish dish!”

Karen also revealed that she wasn’t aware of the ingredients that goes into making haggis and was shocked to hear that lungs were included.
