Presenter enjoyed junk food as a model
Lisa Snowdon hasn’t always been glam.
The Capital FM presenter admits she used to hang out around a fast food restaurant in her teens where she’d munch on chicken and drink wine.
‘When I was 17, Dad used to say: “I’d much prefer you to come home in the evening than be out with a Bargain Bucket,”‘ says Lisa, 42.
‘But I loved meeting up with friends on the wall outside KFC.
‘It was our little place and it felt cool, glamorous and independent, sitting there sharing chicken and chips and a bottle of Blue Nun.’
Lisa’s love of fast food continued when she became a model and spent time away from home.
‘At 19, I was in Tokyo on a three-month modelling agency contract, living on my own,’ the pretty brunette tells The Observer Food Monthly.
‘Big Macs featured heavily. Not only was the agency above a McDonald’s but they’d give me a little map showing western food landmarks and instructions to “turn right at McDonald’s”.
‘I was also eating cornflakes most nights.’
