My Secret Life: Sadie Frost, fashion designer

If I have time to myself ... I drink lots of tea and watch Friends in bed. I love vegging out doing nothing with my kids.

You wouldn't know it but I'm very good at ... tap dancing. I started when I was seven and I still have tap shoes - I get them out to be silly.

You may not know it but I'm very bad at ... Shopping. I find it boring, I have no patience.

Movie heaven ... The Party. Everything goes wrong for Peter Sellers' character, it's something I can definitely relate to.

Comfort eating ... A wheat-free sandwich with cheese, pickle, garlic and onions. I love anything savoury.

When I was a child I wanted to be ... a dancer or gymnast.

I drive/ride ... a black 4x4, but I'm about to get a new Peugeot 1007, for which Jemima [French] and I designed the interior. It's small, but big enough for the kids and my dog, Blousy.

All my money goes on ... the kids' toys, clothes and pastimes. I just bought Raff and Iris a tortoise and Rudy a goldfish.

At night I dream of ... sorting out my problems. I'm trying to process a lot of painful stuff at the moment.

My favourite building ... The Hoover Building [on the M40]. It means I'm leaving London for the Cotswolds, or vice-versa.

My biggest regret ...

losing my father before becoming friends. He was very sick (mentally) when he was dying so I had to distance myself, but I loved him.

If I wasn't me I'd like to be ... a farmer living in the hills somewhere in Europe.

My favourite work of art ... Anything by Egon Schiele; my ex-husband Gary [Kemp] got me into his work.

The shop I can't walk past ... Liberty.

The soundtrack to my life ... Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love" played at my wedding to Jude [Law].

FrostFrench will unveil their designs for the interior of the Peugeot 1007 at their fashion show on Wednesday. Peugeot 1007 - the first compact car with sliding doors - is available from June 2005, visit www.1007 liveeasy.co.uk
