The quizmaster also divulged she is a recipient of huge amounts of fan mail and said at some point she will “tackle them”.
Anne explained: “I do [get fan mail] and again being autistic, I don’t keep entirely on top of it. I have a basket for the fan mail and at some point I will begin to tackle it. It’s pretty big.
“I like being able to be left alone and just get on with things, and there was a period of time, for about six months, where things just wouldn’t stop. I was just running and running. I was looking back and thinking, ‘How did I do that and not actually die.’”
She added: “I find it difficult to sort of jump from one thing to another all the time. I love just being at home and chilling.”
The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm.
