There’s noth­ing bet­ter than an episode of Yes, Min­is­ter

Do you clash at all with your hus­band about what you’re go­ing to watch on the box?

We ar­gue about the same things that most peo­ple ar­gue about – like who has the re­mote? And what we’re watch­ing tonight. His history doc­u­men­tary?

No – US crime drama NCIS!

Do you watch a lot of crime dra­mas?

I watch Sher­lock and Mid­somer Mur­ders. David Suchet was a great Poirot – he got him to a T.

You’re a big

Bake Off fan. Do you do much bak­ing in Num­ber 10?

Be­cause I’m di­a­betic [she has type 1 di­a­betes] I tend not to bake these days, but I can watch and admire the amaz­ing show­pieces that they pro­duce. It’s great

fun watch­ing Bake Off.

Who are your TV role mod­els?

I en­joyed watch­ing The Avengers with Diana Rigg and then Joanna Lum­ley. But I don’t think I thought about it in those terms. I have never had a fe­male role model – I’ve al­ways got on with do­ing what I’m do­ing.

Do you have favourite films?

Casablanca, The Fugi­tive and You

Only Live Twice.

What about po­lit­i­cal­lythemed shows?

There’s noth­ing bet­ter for a gov­ern­ment min­is­ter than an episode of Yes, Min­is­ter.

Did you see ed Balls on

Strictly Come Danc­ing?

I like watch­ing Strictly, but my Satur­day evenings tend to be busy so I wasn’t re­ally able to see Ed – just snatches on the Sun­day re­sults pro­gramme.
