Fans were shocked to see her restoring an old trophy and making it shine to its former brilliance when the new edition of the show first aired and she took Krik's place.

The substantial mahogany shield, which was first used in 1904, was inlaid with approximately 100 tiny silver plaques that listed the winners of each season. According to the program, every year, under-15s teams from 26 districts across Wales competed for the rugby trophy, which was restored in the show.
