Favourite food/drink: Chinese or Thai – I could eat it every day, although that would do no favours for the waistline!! Drink would have to be a mojito – takes me back to a summer holiday in my youth where the pool attendant took a shine to my friend and delivered us a mojito on the beach every day!
Interesting fact about you: I have two gold medals from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Acting and Verse & Prose
Favourite ‘out of work’ activity: I should probably make out that I am a fitness freak or very intellectual, but I am a girly girl at heart so you would normally find me shopping, in the pub with a large glass of wine or chilling in the spa while I tell everyone I am at the gym!
Favourite type of holiday: Scorching hot beach holiday, nothing better than relaxing and doing nothing in the sun – that doesn’t happen very often in PR!!
