Are you good at sending paper-based thanks?
Now you mention it, I have never, ever written a thank you letter. God – that’s really bad isn’t it? I feel terrible. Sorry everyone, although I blame it on my parents. They never made me.
Any barnet nightmares?
I had one style that was supposed to look like it was layered, but ended up as a massive bowl cut with hair underneath. That scarred me. People kept on pointing, laughing and shouting, “Mullet!”
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done?
Flying really terrifies me. Recently, I went to Vegas and did a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. It was meant to be a birthday present, but it was horrendous – I screamed from start to finish.
Have you kissed a girl and liked it?
I honestly haven’t. My best friend’s gorgeous and people always nudge us and say “go on”, but I just wouldn’t do that. I’d rather kiss boys. I like that.
Have you got a dog?
This is awful, because I love animals, but I had a puppy and gave him away after a week. It was a Japanese spitz that looked like a baby husky. I left him in my all-white living room for the day, then came back to find the walls covered in shit. He’d rolled around in it and then jumped up the walls. It stank and I found him another home quick smart.
What’s your record run distance?
I do 20 minutes on the cross-trainer, then give up. I couldn’t go longer, even if you paid me.
A clean bedroom or bathroom. Your view?
A clean bathroom: 100%. Everyone’s bedroom is untidy, but a dirty bathroom, ugh! That says something really bad about you. I actually dumped a guy because of his disgusting bathroom once. It was going well, then I saw the grime and he was gone.
A bit like Cillit Bang, then…What do you look for in boyfriend?
I like men to be really relaxed and trust is obviously a massive issue. They have got to be funny – personality beats looks – and laid back. As soon as anything becomes a hassle I can’t be bothered.
What’s your best bit of career advice?
Thrive on criticism. If anyone gives you any negative feedback you go out, do what they said you couldn’t do and prove them wrong.
