Her job has helped many people with their animals, so she decided to go digital and carry on her work bringing positivity and leaving people's spirits during quarantine.

She said: "So many of us have had our businesses shut down by Covid-19. I am an animal physiotherapist, so found this very hard to swallow. My clients were so sad, and I cried when we were told this blow. I felt unimaginable sadness at the thought of my patients deteriorating and I concluded I was not going to let the virus win."

Ms Wills added: "We did the interview and the response was incredible. We had owners interacting and asking questions and thanking us for putting the show on. I asked questions like, what still grosses her out as a vet? What made her become a vet? If she could chat to anyone right now who would it be."
