‘This is probably going to be an unpopular thing to say but he and Susan (Carland, his wife) to me, are everything that Islam is really all about,’ Meshel said.
The Buddhism For The Unbelievably Busy author said she thought of the high-profile couple as the epitome of their faith.
‘They’re actually very – they’re quite formal, they’re very gentle and very focused on remaining gentle and remaining peaceful. And I find that in Muslim people,’ she explained.
‘That goes against everything we’re told to expect but to me, they’re a great example of that. They’re just really sweet, gentle people. And they’re just a joy to be around.’

Meshel also admitted that some of her antics with The Project’s panellists could make Waleed’s jaw drop.
‘When Waleed, Gorgi and Lehmo and I are together, we just make so much fun of him because he is shocked by us all the time,’ she laughed.
‘We can be outrageous and he’s very easily outraged.’
