She said, “With prisoners, you tend to be friendly, not friends. You build relationships with them, but you keep it on a level where you don’t want to talk about anything personal. However, I think there was a clip of me and Ryan Reynolds and my goal on Football Focus. So a lot of the prisoners watched that, they saw that, recognized me and they thought I was the best thing ever.

Even though her secret was out, Hughes was extremely elated about the love and attention she received from the prisoners. Even after achieving fame as a footballer, Hughes is not ready to leave her job as a prison officer, as she is proud of being one.
