Where did you go to school
Maidstone Grammar school in Kent
If I wasn’t on the radio I’d work as a Vet! I have always loved animals apart from Sea Lions and Rats! I think I would have been fine as you don’t see that many people walking into the vets with a sea lion these days do you?
My most treasured item is.. my 50th anniversary Blue Peter badge! Only people who actually presented or worked on the show got one so it is a nice keep sake although it is tempting just to see how much it might fetch on Ebay!
If I won 1 million pounds the first thing I’d do is.. deposit it all into my bank account and then ring the bank up and ask to check my balance as I was a bit worried I might have gone overdrawn! Then listen to how the attitude of the person on the line changes as my balance pops up how satisfying!
My most embarassing moment is.. dressing as a carrot on primetime TV I thank my lucky stars everyday that it wasn’t a brussel sprout!
The person I’d want to play me in a film would be.. Maggie Smith with a lot of CGI!
