Inside Priya’s personal life

The single mum of three had all of her children over a very short space of time.

Speaking to Asian Voice, she explained the difficulty of juggling motherhood with a professional career that demands TV appearances and lots of out-of-office hours.

She said:

Family life has definitely been the biggest obstacle. In the past eight years, I have had three babies and breastfed for over four years and been pregnant for 27 months. Having small babies has made it a lot harder to travel to meetings and to be away from home overnight. I have had to turn down work but it has also meant I have found ways to work creatively.
