When I am work­ing hard and need to wind down I… Go shop­ping. It takes my mind off work. I love med­i­ta­tion but I need some­thing that is the to­tal op­po­site of what I do. The per­son who in­spires me the

most is… My hus­band of 40 years, Steve. I’m a Leo and so I can get my­self very worked up, but he is so easy­go­ing. He is my New Zealand man­ager and a great cook who makes all my meals – so he is a very ver­sa­tile hus­band! When you are on tele­vi­sion you be­come pub­lic prop­erty and peo­ple say some un­be­liev­able things, but he will say, “Think of the 90 per cent, not the 10 per cent.” He is my rock. The three items I take with me

wher­ever I go are… My purse, makeup and phone.

If deadI couldit would bring be… some­oneMy grand­moth­erback from the on my I didn’t mum’s have side.a very She good­was so child­hood beau­ti­ful. and she lived just a few doors down from us. When things were re­ally bad I would run down there. Her en­ergy was lovely. The best ad­vice I ever re­ceived was…

Be your­self. The book or film that changed my

life was… What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams – I think that pro­ducer knew a lot about the other side. It re­ally res­onated with me. If I could in­vent one thing it would be…

A cure for all ill­nesses.

If I had a bil­lion dol­lars I would… Build more build­ings for Hospice, do­nate food to schools for hun­gry chil­dren, buy dogs for the Blind Foun­da­tion and cre­ate an or­gan­i­sa­tion for adults with ter­mi­nal ill­nesses to ful­fil their bucket lists. My favourite way to spend Sun­day

is… If it is a nice day I like to go for a drive, or to the beach. On win­try days I just chill out at home in Maun­garaki, Welling­ton. We are on a hill and I love look­ing out to sea and watch­ing the fer­ries com­ing in. It’s so peace­ful.
