If you could invite five people to a dinner party, dead or alive, who would they be?

My brother-in-law Keith, my dad, my mum, my stepdad, and my aunty Silv. All the family that I love and miss every day and would do anything to be with them again.

What three items would you take with you to a deserted island?

Tom Hanks, he’d know what to do!
Tin of Ambrose Rice cream
My dog Chum for company

What is your favourite holiday destination and why?

I would have to say Spain, growing up in London was the perfect getaway and the nightclubs were rocking back then.

What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?

It's nice to be nice, never a truer saying. My father-in-law would say it every morning and it just stuck with me, I use it all the time with my kids making them say it at the end of every phone call!!

If money was no object, what would you do all day?

Help get the homeless off the streets and into decent accommodation, something I am very passionate about.
