You need to have money to enjoy London I'd say. My first impression as a

19-year-old student was the cold] I was invited back years later to appear in Sugar Babies with Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller. That was great, but now I'm working here again, London is fabulous]

Back home in Australia people seem happier. I know you get the 'whingeing Poms jokes but taxi drivers just complain about everything. Like it's only a pounds 3.50 fare from where I'm staying to the theatre, but they moan. They moan about how long they've been sitting on the rank and I just think 'Do you want the job or not? I find that so frustrating.

So what do I do when I'm not working? I SHOP] I'm a fashion victim. I love Harvey Nichols and Harrods. I'd say four out of five trips I come back with a purchase. We have all the designer labels back home but it's far more expensive.

When I go out with my seven stage brothers from Hot Shoe Shuffle though, I get into big trouble because we're so silly. The only thing I don't like about London is those pompous people. This is a city where the rich get richer and the poor get left behind. I hate people who act as if they're above you; especially with our show here. They look at us as if to say, 'Well, its not Shakespeare, is it? Well, get this. This is the home of Benny Hill, isn't it? That makes me really laugh. For me, London seems to be full of contradictions.
