6 OF THE BEST

New Idea - - Contents -

1 BERNARD TOMIC AUSSIE TEN­NIS ‘BRAT’

‘He told me: “I don’t care if peo­ple don’t like me, I just want them to un­der­stand me.” He just doesn’t seem to care if he is per­ceived as brash and ar­ro­gant, take it or leave it. His fam­ily fled Bos­nia with noth­ing and that’s what drives him.’

2 DR AN­GELA JAY STABBED AND DOUSED WITH PETROL BY A TIN­DER STALKER

‘Oh God, talk about strong!’ mar­vels Melissa. ‘She went through such an aw­ful, fright­en­ing event. She’s still so scarred, men­tally and phys­i­cally, and yet she wants to speak out and help other women. Wow, re­mark­able!’

3 CANDICE HEDGE AUSSIE SUR­VIVOR OF THE LON­DON BRIDGE TER­ROR ATTACK

‘She was so in­cred­i­bly lucky: the ter­ror­ist’s knife just missed her main ar­ter­ies and wind­pipe. But she was de­ter­mined to stay in Lon­don and be de­fi­ant. We all need to hear from some­one like Candice, who says, “I’m not go­ing to let this de­feat me!”’

4 JAMES HE­WITT PRINCESS DIANA’S FORMER LOVER

‘An in­ter­est­ing man to meet. To be re­ally hon­est, he was charm­ing. He had a lot of re­morse, big re­grets, about a lot of things that hap­pened and how his life had panned out. We all felt re­ally sad for him when we walked away.’

5 MARCO PIERRE WHITE CELEBRITY CHEF, RESTAU­RA­TEUR AND TV PRE­SEN­TER

‘Very in­tense would prob­a­bly be the best word I could use. He’s a bit of a rock god re­ally! We vis­ited his pri­vate es­tate in the coun­try and he could not have been a more gra­cious host – but his fam­ily was off lim­its for dis­cus­sion.’

6 LAU­RENCE LLEWELYNBOWEN FLAM­BOY­ANT BRI­TISH DE­SIGNER AND HOUSE RULES JUDGE

‘I loved him. He and his fam­ily are such fun. His beau­ti­ful wife greeted me at the door with gin and tonic at 10am and I just knew we were go­ing to have a great day! Lau­rence de­liv­ers what peo­ple ex­pect and want from him, but he has a pri­vate side as well. He’s just de­light­ful.’
