WHAT ROCKS MEL’S WORLD…

Prima (UK) - - Meet Your Cover Star -

Cur­rent TV ob­ses­sion I’m re­dis­cov­er­ing Love­joy. I for­got how good Ian Mcshane was in it. He’d be in a scene and then sud­denly turn to cam­era and do a mono­logue. He’s sen­sa­tional. Food Where do I start? Cor­nish pasties. Bat­ten­berg cake. Gold­en­ber­ries cov­ered in raw ca­cao. I buy them by the bagload. Dried cher­ries. Nando’s Peri-peri medium-strength sauce lit­er­ally on ev­ery­thing…

Sig­na­ture dish I do a mean Brazil­ian fish stew. My sis­ter-in­law, Dodi, gave me the recipe. Celebrity crush Hugh Grant. I’ve a big­ger crush on him than ever be­fore. I could never meet him,

I’d have an ac­ci­dent. Gen­uinely. Book The Magic Moun­tain by Thomas Mann. It will blow your mind.

Text or phone call? Text. I used to think that ‘lol’ meant ‘lots of love’. So I’d be tex­ting ‘lol, Mum’ and the kids would be so em­bar­rassed. Favourite word or phrase? Lit­er­ally. I say it lit­er­ally all the time.

Thing you can’t live with­out? Fam­ily. It’s ev­ery­thing.
