In this week's interview Stephanie Bell talks to former Miss Northern Ireland and Miss UK Gayle Williamson (40), who is engaged to Richard Bell and lives in Crawfordsburn, Co Down with her 14-year-old son Brandon Corr. Gayle and her fiance Richard (44) are opening their new business, Whinney Doggy Daycare, in Holywood this month.

Q. Tell us about your childhood?

A. I was born in Dollingstown and we moved to Lurgan when I was three. My parents separated when I was young and even though I lived with my mum, Olga, my dad, Noel, was very involved in my upbringing and I saw him regularly.
