Speaking about serving as a judge on Lego Masters, she said: “My job is just sort of a big version of what they do on the show, I think about something, design it and then build it.
“I wanted to get involved to show that people will build and innately they know principles of engineering and physics, but they might not actually completely understand them.

“When you’re building something and it’s leaning to the left, you build something more up the right of it.”
