VOTE FOR CAROLINE TO WIN HIGH STREET HONEYS 2009 AT www.fhm.com/carolinewindsor

 

What's your exact job title?

Student studying Architectural Technology at The Robert Gordon University.

What age will you be this March?

I will be 26 this March... aaargh!

Do you have a nickname? If so, what is it and who gave you it and why?

Haven't got a nickname.

Why did you enter High Street Honeys?

My fantasy dream job has always been to be a TV presenter, so when I saw this year's main prize is a chance to be a presenter I thought I'd have a go and enter - and the ten thousand pounds would go down nicely too!

Why should readers vote for you?

I think people should vote for me because I'm genuine and very down to earth, don't take myself too seriously and I don't try to be something that I'm not... what you see is what you get! I'm always cheery and friendly and winning wouldn't turn me into a diva, I would still stay the same!

What did you think of the shoot?

I loved the shoot! I love London so really enjoyed the travel down, it was great meeting the other Scottish girls Julia and Kirsty, who are both lovely and we all got on really well so I'll definitely keep in touch with them after. Having my hair and makeup done professionally was great and I loved the actual photo shoot, although the wind machine was a little chilly! But the best bit of the whole day was the gorgeous, very expensive shoes I got to wear - if I win I can buy myself a pair!

What makes you a good choice as a TV presenter?

I think I'd make a good TV presenter because I've got a very good sense of humour and can get on with all different types of people. I don't crumble under pressure and if I mess things up, I would let it go over my head. I'm always getting myself into embarrassing situations and making a tit of myself, but laughing it off and being able to take the piss out of myself is the best way to get over it!

What TV programme would you ideally like to present and why?

I would have a lot of fun doing reality TV programmes like Xtra Factor, meeting lots of weird and interesting people! I also really like cooking - I'm sure there's a gap in the market for a new Scottish Nigella! But I also love animals being a country bumpkin and growing up on a farm, so any type of programme with food or animals would be fun... but not mixed together!

Which programme would you hate to present and why?

I wouldn't make a good news reader, it's far too serious and I get the giggles too easily to trust me reading the news.

Who would you like to present with and why?

I love Holly Willoughby, she's always happy and looks like she's having fun on camera.

Recall your worst fashion disaster.

I've had a couple of dodgy haircuts during my teens, and when I was 14 I had these awful tracksuit bottoms with poppers all up the sides (which were very in at the time). One day at school a horrible boy thought it would be funny to pull at the bottom of them so all the poppers came undone and I was left one popper away from being left trouser-less in my knickers - very embarrassing and I never wore them again after that!

Who would you hate to present with and why?

I have 3 TV enemies: Jeremy Kyle needs to be drowned and the two Scottish interior designers Colin and Justin, I can't put into words how much I can't stand them but if you've ever watched them on TV you'll understand!

Describe the outfit you'd wear on your first day?

I'm most comfortable in my jeans, a pair of heels and a little t-shirt, so would probably wear that.

What would you do with the £10,000 prize?

I was born in New Zealand and moved to Scotland when I was one, I haven't managed to go back to see all my family there since I was 9 so would use the money to take a trip over and spend some time there travelling around, and my brother is in Australia at the moment so I would go and visit him too - I'd give the rest to my dad to go towards reimbursing him for the years of putting me through Uni, I've been an expensive daughter so would be nice to give him something back!

What would it mean to you to win this competition?

It would be very surreal to win something like this, I'm still shocked to have got as far as this. When I see other people winning things I always think good on them for doing so well and don't ever think it could happen to me, but anything is possible... I'll just have to hope I get enough votes!

What football team do you support?

I'm not really into football, if anything I prefer rugby, but my local team is Aberdeen so it's always good to see them do well even if I'm not a big football fan!

Where's your favourite place to go shopping (place, not shops themselves)?

Glasgow is great for shopping, it has a good variety of shops all within walking distance of each other, plus lot's of nice bars to stop for a break in.

What's the best thing about the city you live in?

I love Aberdeen, it's quite a small city and so is in easy reach to get to the beach or the country which is handy for taking my dog for a good walk. There is lots of beautiful Scottish countryside to see nearby and it's not always as cold and wet as Aberdeen is perceived to be!

What's the worst thing about the city you live in?

The worst thing about Aberdeen would probably be it's quite small, there isn't a huge selection of good shops and nice bars to go to.

What's your typical weekend night-out?

My favourite way to spend a Saturday night is to have friends over for a meal and lots of booze!
