Ms Bruce told pupils at University College School (UCS) in Frognal, Hampstead, last Thursday that she worked in advertising and as a business consultant before landing a job as a researcher on BBC’s current affairs programme Panorama.

Ms Bruce told pupils: “For those of you in sixth form who haven’t figured out what they want to do – don’t panic!”

On working in the media, she added: “It is often the unknown person who is doing extraordinary things or in an extraordinary position that is the more interesting than the well-known public figure.”

Senior judge Lord Justice Leveson, chairman of the school’s council, welcomed guests before Ms Bruce took to the stage.
