Miss Winterbone said: "After college I started working at Subway, I was promoted to a senior and then team leader but left in 2017.

"After Subway, I had no other job to go to, so I started my own business.

"My parents are both self-employed and I have always wanted my own business. It was a spur of the moment decision, I took what I loved and turned it into my business."

Rob Hodges, careers leader at Neatherd and Ella's former business studies teacher, said: "It's lovely to see a former student creating her own successful business."
