"Simon said he’d given us a lifeline and he expected a lot in return. He warned us that there would be ridiculously long hours, but we didn’t mind one bit. Just to have that feeling of being given another chance was unbelievable. Every time I think about it, even now, I get a bit of a shiver, and it’s one of those moments that I will remember for as long as I live. And probably longer. Simon said to take five minutes to think about it, but I didn’t hesitate. I was like, ‘Yes, without a doubt.’"
