Do you get much leisure time?
No, I don't get much leisure time but when I do , I make the
most of it.
Who do you like to spend time with?
My boyfriend Billy is my favourite person to spend time with,
as we rarely have the same time off together. He is very involved
in International Kickboxing and it consumes a lot of his spare
How would you spend an ideal day off?
An ideal day off would start with getting up early and feeling
great, not tired. I would catch the 9.30am to London, hit
the shops for an hour and then go to lunch. More shopping
in the afternoon, catch a movie because the theatres finish
too late, get back to Heathrow and catch the last flight home.
What is your favourite food/restaurant?
My favourite restaurant locally? I don't have a favourite,
I like to eat in different restaurants and it also depends
on the mood I'm in. The restaurants I like are Deanes, Aldens,
Shanks and Fontana in Holywood.
Who would you least like to spend a day with or what do
you least like doing?
I least like doing bookwork and would prefer not to spend
a day with someone I don't like as my spare time is precious.
If money were no object, where would you travel to?
I love travelling and if money were no problem, I would go
to Aman Puri in Puket, Thailand.
Favourite TV programmes/soap operas?
I don't get to watch much television, but at the moment, I
am addicted to Big Brother as they are all playing a big game
and I'm curious to see who'll win.
Do you spend much time pampering yourself?
Yes-I love pampering myself. I have a facial once a fortnight
and have regular back massages as my back would tend to give
Favourite newspaper/radio programme?
I don't read daily newspapers, but I always read the Sunday
papers. I put the radio on at work when we become a bit bored
of our CDs - its tuned in to Cool FM.
Do you find shopping and spending money good for relaxation?
It depends on how much I spend.
How important is a healthy lifestyle to you?
It is important to me but I find it very difficult to be healthy
all the time. It is difficult trying to stick to a regime
when you have such a hectic schedule.
If you where stranded on a desert Island, how would you
ensure you had a fun stay?
By being organised and prepared.
