If I wasn’t an athlete I’d be a ..


Ski instructor in Canada or I would love to play professional football in America, basically something active, competitive and in good weather! 


You would never catch me watching….


Snooker, golf, darts… just about anything that requires patience!


On the other hand I never miss an episode of…


Desperate Housewives, the X-factor, and The Apprentice – top telly!


My choice of radio station is….


Radio One, I like waking up to Chris Moyles and I can’t stand adverts!


Grange Hill
Grange Hill - a tragic loss to TV sets everywhere!!!


I would love to have a shopping spree in…


Abercrombie and Fitch


My first car was…


My black Citroen Saxo which is still going strong.


If my house was on fire I would definitely save my (assuming family are already safe!!!) 


Dylan, my little springer spaniel as runs wouldn’t be the same without him!


The last film I watch at the cinema was..


I don’t really go to the cinema but it probably would have been last Christmas with my family to see St Trinians


Comedy genius to me is…. (e.g. name a tv or film comic, why you think they’re funny and their funniest scene)


Alan Carr, he is a funny, funny guy with no inhibitions!


The silliest thing I have ever done in competition was…


Let a team mate pin my number on my back vest, we were very young and she managed to pin it into my skin...


One of the first TV programmes I remember watching when I was young was… 


Grange Hill, a great loss to televisions since it was canned.
