Cameron, who also confirmed she was changing trainer on Tuesday, leaving Jamie Moore and Nigel Travis to work at the Steel City Gym under Grant Smith.

“It’s been very amicable between me and my old team. I love them to pieces and think the world of them still, there’s been no fallout. It was just the fact that I needed something new, I needed change,” she explained.

“Changing teams has relit that fire, because I’m in a new environment, I’m doing different training. I was happy before, but I’m also very happy now; this change was needed. Jamie understood that. We had a conversation, I cried, and we gave each other a hug. We’re still gonna be friends, but I had to do this for my own career – to progress again.”
