Back in May, Café Tarifa was re-possessed while Cage Coco was put on the market as Mr Pugh attributed it to low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) which he claims have harmed trade in the area.

Recorded at former Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw's house in London, the star of Little Women, Oppenheimer and Dune Part 2 joined Nick and Angela Hartnett and discussed her time working in the establishments growing up.

Ms Harnett asked: “You worked in your dad's restaurant, didn't you?”

“All of, all of the siblings, all the kids, all of our first jobs were in restaurants.”, Ms Pugh responded.

Talking about the confidence it gave her, she said: “Dealing with great people, and also dealing with s**t people.

"I think when you're a teenager and you're working in any establishment, you think that you are there for the business and you're allowed to be treated as such for the business.

“And I think it's such a massive part of growing up when you are doing a job as a waiter or washing dishes or making coffees.

“That if you get something wrong and someone is rude to you, you have an opportunity to stand up like it's all part of the whole thing.

“You're there to work as part of a family, you're there to work as a team, and then equally, you're there to grow as a person.

"And everybody gets to help you kind of like, shape that part of you.”

Ms Pugh also discussed what it was like living in a big family which had a keen interest in food and the hospitality industry.

She said: “So I grew up in a big family, four siblings, two sets of grandparents that loved food.

“They spent most of their lives talking and eating and creating good food, and that obviously trickled down to both my parents my dad grew up in a pub and has been running and creating restaurants since he could, and I've just been around the need for eating food and like understanding good quality.

“It doesn't necessarily need to be expensive food. It's like why we are eating the food that we eat, and how it will benefit us and how it'll make us feel better.

“And so, like, I remember on the weekends we weren't allowed to watch TV at a certain time, but we were allowed to watch cooking shows.”
