How much do you spend? Usu­ally around £100-£120 a week. Now that I have two chil­dren [Rocco, three, and Tahlia, two], I do my gro­cery shop on­line, late at night on my phone, and it’s de­liv­ered the next day. De­scribe your daily diet My hus­band Alex and I re­cently res­cued our lo­cal post of­fice and turned half of it into a cof­fee shop, so if I’m there I’ll have av­o­cado or mush­rooms on sour­dough, or scram­bled eggs and smoked salmon when I’m at home. Lunch is pea and ham hock soup with crack­ers, and I like pork chops with new pota­toes and broc­coli or a monk­fish red curry for din­ner. I tend to avoid sugar, so I snack on lots of roasted al­monds as they are a good source of en­ergy. What would you cook to im­press? I’d make a pad Thai or a slow roast shoul­der of lamb with roasted gar­lic new pota­toes. What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? Re­cently, I was show­ing some­one a house in Spain for A Place In The Sun and I bit into a fig I picked in the gar­den. I’d eaten nearly half of it be­fore I no­ticed a mag­got in­side! Is there any­thing you refuse to eat? Tripe. An ex-boyfriend’s nan used to eat it but I thought it was dis­gust­ing. Food hang­over cure? I usu­ally or­der a Chi­nese of crispy seaweed with sweet and sour prawns.
