Annabel de Lacy

BAFTA award-winning Rebecca Front (The Thick of It, Up the Women, Nighty Night, The Day Today) stars alongside her brother Jeremy Front in this series about five extraordinary women.

Each day this week Jeremy has met one of the UK's most 'incredible women'. He spends 24 hours in their company, visiting their homes and finding out what makes them tick. Plus we discover some very odd things about each incredible woman.

Today Rebecca and Jeremy Front introduce us to our final incredible woman of the week: Olympic equestrian Annabel de Lacy.

Clare Balding is on hand to explain the importance of Annabel's contribution to the 2012 Olympics and recalls her winning a gold and winning the hearts of the nation.

The only fly in the ointment is her estate manager Rob Peters who seems to have persuaded Annabel to live in the stables while he makes himself at home in her inherited Tudor mansion. A terrible accident occurs just after Jeremy's uncomfortable stay with Annabel in the stable. However this results in Jeremy getting a world exclusive of Annabel's invention 'jazzage' - anew form of dressage which she's developing for her horse Caravaggio, and with which she plans to wow the crowds in Rio 2016.

Starring Rebecca Front, Jeremy Front, Clare Balding, Robert Daws, Sean Murray and two pairs of coconut shells.
