Basically, she says. she's the only one who can keep Davy Mac and Davy Groat in order (although if you look at their profiles, they each say that they are the one that looks after the other two!)
Barbara was born in Braemore in Caithness, and has lived in the county all of her life. She has one daughter, (Helen who is a former receptionist) and two grandchildren (Kevin - former presenter and Amy - another former receptionist).
During her workig life Barbara used to be found on the buses as a "clippie", and in later years on reception at the local swimming pool. However she is now enjoying her retirement.
