Who will you be toast­ing at mid­night on NYE? The health and hap­pi­ness of our friends and fam­ily. We might also have a cheeky toast to our­selves for sur­viv­ing an­other year with our baby Annabel, who’s dis­cov­er­ing the ‘ter­ri­ble twos’ slightly ear­lier than ad­ver­tised!

Have you got a dream get­away for 2017? We’d love to visit Sri Lanka, but at the mo­ment, I’d be happy to spend a cou­ple of weeks in a villa in Mal­lorca – it’s rel­a­tively quick and easy to get to.

What do you miss most about Aus­tralia? The weather and the out­doors life­style that goes with hav­ing such lovely long sum­mers. In Lon­don’s de­fence, last sum­mer was a good one.

If you were an an­i­mal what would you be? Lion, king of the jun­gle. Be­fore we had the baby, we spent many years trav­el­ling to Africa on safari.

How do you and Peter spend a per­fect grown-up night out? We don’t get the op­por­tu­nity much these days, but we en­joy eat­ing out. So when we get the chance, we try new restau­rants.

What’s your se­cret in­dul­gence? Wine. We both love a glass or two of a nice white or rosé. We’re pretty sure it’s not a se­cret, though!
