I adore psychological thrillers. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins being my absolute favourite to date.

Sipping a mojito whilst sunbathing on a private beach in St Lucia.

It's a toss up between Machu Picchu in Peru & Petra in Jordan - both locations are magical, absolutely breathtaking & truly unforgettable.
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
Rupaul's Drag Race... “If you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else, can I get an amen?"
What’s your favourite sport to watch or play?
I'm not the biggest sports advocate, but enjoy doing pilates & a couple of laps of the local swimming pool to unwind.

Anything by Billie Eilish, Haim, Lana Del Rey or Dua Lipa.
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
The incredible artisan food scene - my favourite spots being the monthly makers markets & Altrincham Market Hall.
Tell us about your pet
I don't have any pets, but I do have an adorable one year old called Archie who provides more than enough cuteness for me.
Sunday brunch or Sunday roast?
Always brunch. My go-to is a cheeky bit of smashed chilli avo on homemade sourdough, topped with perfectly poached eggs, grilled halloumi, a squeeze of fresh lime & a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

... drinking my 'posh' tea'.
