AGE­ING I don’t think I’m get­ting older – I think I’m Peter Pan! In my mind I’m still 20 to 25, I don’t think about get­ting old. I don’t feel old, I feel young all the time.


It was lovely [wear­ing a wig ear­lier this year, right] – it was just re­ally odd be­cause when I put it on, I en­joyed it for the first few min­utes and then I sud­denly thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I miss my hair,’ so I got a bit teary. I’ve never worn it again. I think I’m so used to be­ing bald now. Any­way, my daugh­ter and my friends love me as I am.

KEEP­ING FIT I stick to a healthy diet and try to drink loads of wa­ter. I love to run with my dog, Yogi, and I do yoga. I don’t cut out food groups and me and Honey love our “sin­ful Satur­days,” where we scoff Domino’s or Nando’s!

MY BREAST RE­DUC­TION Peo­ple think it’s great to have big boobs, but I strug­gled with them all my life. They were so big [size 28JJ] on my tiny 5ft 2 frame that my back had ac­tu­ally started to curve. It was scary and painful. But since my breast re­duc­tion [last year to a 28C], I’ve felt 20 years younger. It was worth ev­ery bit of the fear and worry and I should have done it years ago.

own book and never thought I was clever enough, but if you don’t talk about it, how are you go­ing to help other peo­ple?”

She adds, “Live each day as it comes be­cause you never know what’s around the corner.”
