The venue: The Ivy, which I love because it's a 90-second walk from the office.

The company: Emma Bunton, who is hosting Don't Stop Believing for us.

The conversation: We talked about the show, but it was a very gossipy lunch too.

On the menu: I always have the same main course, the grilled chicken, because I go out to eat a lot and if I did eat all of the things that I love then I'd be the size of a house. What I drink depends on the schmoozing required. There's a fabulous Chablis and a cheeky Merlot rosé.

Come here often? In my job I need to schmooze a lot of people, whether they are producers, talent, their representatives or agents, or colleagues and peers within the media. So yes, I do.
