Best place you’ve travelled to?

It’s not the best place I’ve travelled to but my favourite holiday destination is St Ives, Cornwall and I look forward to holidaying there every October with my family.

Would you rather… only ever eat hot meals or only ever eat cold meals? 

Hot meals, can’t beat a good curry!

Favourite TV show?

Casualty, I’m so rock “n” roll – that’s where you’ll find me on a Saturday night… watching Casualty.

Three things you’d take on a desert island are…

  • My son, Rio
  • Shower gel
  • Hairdryer
