‘I think this may be the pinnacle of my career! So nervous and so excited. What a wonderful experience. I LOVE Desert island Discs!’ – Anya


On Sunday 30th December, Anya became a 'castaway' in the BBC Radio 4 Studios to take part in one of the world's longest running and most loved radio shows, Desert Island Discs. Imagining that she was stranded on a desert island, Anya was tasked with choosing just 8 songs, a book and a luxury item to take with her. If you missed the full program, listen to Anya discuss her choices and the intriguing reasons behind each one with Radio 4 presenter Kirsty Young here.
