A Stamford artist who painted comedian Nish Kumar on a hit television show considered painting over the portrait before it was bought by the TV star.

Michelle Fernandes, known as Meesh, appeared on Sky TV's Portrait Artist of the Year on Wednesday, having entered the show as part of her return to art following the death of her wife in 2018.

Artists are given just four hours to complete their celebrity portrait, while also having to break off for interviews with hosts Joan Bakewell and Stephen Mangan.
