The first job I had was as a paper girl at the age of 12, but as a student at University I did a variety of random jobs for beer money. The oddest was stacking boxes in a biscuit factory to pay for my Glastonbury ticket.
Most treasured possession?
My most treasured possessions are photographs and video footage of my two children. Looking back at them as babies is my favourite thing to do and it always amazes me how fast the time has gone. I still have hundreds I need to print and sort when I get a spare day or 5.
I can’t choose just one, it would be between Red Hot Chilli Peppers' Under the Bridge, Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s The Power of Love, and Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy.
Too many, again. I do love an oldie like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, but also the classics like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Leon and Dirty Dancing.
Favourite holiday destination?
When I get the chance I love to visit new places. Ibiza has been a favourite over the years, from a party destination with friends to more recently a beach holiday with the children. I love the laid back vibes and the sunsets are amazing, almost as stunning as Morecambe’s. Italy also holds a special place in my heart after honeymooning on the island of Ischia and travelling around the Amalfi coast. I’ve since returned to see the sights of Rome and Venice, and Florence is next on my list.
What did you want to be when growing up?
An Air Hostess – I remember thinking it would be a great way of seeing the world. Although I don’t think it would have been the right career for me, since I really don’t like flying.
I love ASOS, I have an unhealthy obsession with shoes. I have a large collection of high heel shoes in my wardrobe which have never been worn more than once as they are completely impractical but also absolutely blooming gorgeous.
