Also speaking on their friendship to the publication, Sara said: “She went from being my favourite friend at work to one of my best mates to hang out with socially. I remember when we took that leap from being party pals to chilling at each other's houses, and now we go for Sunday roasts with our partners and kids. The four of us have a great dynamic, and it's always great banter.”
