My Secret Life: Goldie, 46, musician
My parents were... not the best.
The household I grew up in... I didn't grow up in a household – I grew up on the streets.
When I was a child I wanted to be... a deep sea diver.
If I could change one thing about myself... there's nothing I would change about myself.
You wouldn't know it but I am very good at... Bikram yoga. I've been doing it for two years now.
You may not know it but I'm no good at... reading.
At night I dream of... What I dream of depends on what night it is! I dream of lots of different things. I have an original imagination.
I wish I had never worn... Jesus, that is a difficult one. I wish I had never worn size eight pink Puma States, when I was 18, in Derbyshire: they gave me big blisters on my heels.
What I see when I look in the mirror... Ears that need plugging.
My favourite item of clothing... Oh God, I've got so much clothing! My grey silk scarf is probably my favourite.
It's not fashionable but I like... classical music.
I drive/ride... anything from R8s [the 1960s rear-powered Renault] to Ferraris.
My house is... peaceful.
My favourite work of art... That's difficult. I think a whirling dervish that my wife drew.
My favourite building... There's a lot of nice buildings around, but I'd say the Empire State Building.
A book that changed me... The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.
Movie heaven... would be back-to-back Shane Meadows films, and then going on to Peter Andersson films, definitely.
The last album I bought... Radiohead, In Rainbows 2.
My greatest regret... I don't have any. Actually, I'm lying: I regret not getting the size nine Pumas...
My secret crush... I don't have any, though when I was 18, I had a crush on Carol Vorderman.
My real-life villain... Me – I can be my own worst enemy at times.
The person who really makes me laugh... My best friend Woody makes me laugh – he's stupid.
The last time I cried... Yesterday.
My five-year plan... Don't have one – I live for today.
What's the point? Just to get on with it.
My life in six words... Hope I have a right-sided monitor.
