“CBBC is well respected the world over and so she has done fantastically well to get a part in a CBBC show."

Chester audiences may remember Bella from a television advert for the supermarket giant Asda.

The Butcher’s Selection ad featured Bella and her TV ‘family’ sitting around the table eagerly awaiting the serving of a freshly cooked Christmas turkey.
