Taking up a position with the environmentally-minded political group has meant she’s had to step away from some of her TV work, but as she wades into the political arena, the 36-year-old insists, “I’ve never really been afraid of risk. In a way, I’m always emboldened by that kind of talk.”

Speaking of her privileged upbringing and education, and her hope to be “openly campaigning for the next election”, she adds, “I have had so much opportunity, so I can’t just rest on my laurels and be all about myself. That wouldn’t make me happy.”

Read all about Hayley’s new political ambitions, her journey to sobriety and her struggles with bullying in the new issue of Woman’s Day.
