Q&A

If I wasn't working at Go Radio I'd be...
I like to talk and listen so maybe a hairdresser. I love hearing what people have to say.

My celebrity crush is...
Grant Mitchell! I have only ever had one other and it was Ross Kemp playing Grant Mitchell

I have a fear of...
Almost everything. Like having my own show on Go Radio but like with everything else, I jumped in at the deep end and hope for the best. Creepy crawlies also give me the fear. I once stood on a slug with my bare foot and nearly fainted.

If I could have dinner with one person, it would be...
This changes every week. This week, I'm thinking Michelle Obama. I'm listening to her book on Audible. She seems so down to earth talking about making herself toast 'n' cheese.

I bet you didn't know I...
taught mindfulness. I teach in various places and with all types of people.

My favourite movie is...
'Oh The Colour Purple'. If I need a good cry then I watch that although I haven't seen it in years.

The ultimate TV show at the moment is...
'Succession'. I love it! Nothing better than watching dysfunctional millionaires do life. I also love any Real Housewives franchise.

The song that I can listen to on repeat & never tire of is...
Well as a singer, I sing 'Sweet Caroline' and 'Proud Mary' about 3 times a week and have done so for the past 10 years and still love them. Robyn's 'Show Me Love' also does it for me. I have to grab my hairbrush for that one.

I hate it when...
My clothes shrink. Like when I came back from a fabulous two weeks all inclusive in Mexico and tried my clothes on - somehow they had all shrunk! Not sure how that happened?!

My favourite place to eat in Glasgow & the West is...
Bilon Eleven. I live in the East End and this place is amazing. Bringing fine dining to the East End. The food is out of the world.

My favourite place to hang out on weekends is...
Probably my flat. It's my sanctuary. Although I do love Rogano for it's feel.
