How do you like your tea?
Organic teabags, white with semi-skimmed milk and no sugar. I usually drink it from a china mug. I’m always on the go, so don’t often have time to brew it in a pot.
Who would you most like to have tea with and why?
If I could choose anyone from any time, I’d choose Marilyn Monroe. I’d love to sit down with her and find out the truth behind her love affairs. What a conversation that would be! Or The Queen – she has an amazing work ethic, and would obviously serve the very best tea!
How is your daughter’s acting career going?
Very well! She’s doing a bit of PR and stand-up at the moment because it’s really harsh out there. But she has a natural flair, so. hopefully, something will come along.
After I’m A CelebÉ, would you do more reality TV?
My mate [and television presenter] Cheryl Baker told me I have to do Dancing On Ice, but it’s flipping scary.
I’d like to do Strictly Come Dancing because I used to do ballroom with my dad.
How do you stay young?
In my head I’m 35, and my mum has great genes. Plus I’m an eternal optimist, and I think that keeps you young.
