Speaking about leaving, Laila told “It has been lovely to see how much Big Mo means to many people. So for those thinking Big Mo will be gone forever, I can tell you that is not the case.

“When I first mentioned my plans to them they asked my if I would return – ‘of course’ I said. Why wouldn’t I?

“It’s a lovely place to work, I have lots of friends there so it’s not something I would even have to think about.”
