Konnie Huq, 31, is co-presenter of 'The Tube', the former TV show that is to feature on Channel 4's online radio station from 3 November at 6pm.

If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...

Chasing my friend's child around the living room.

A phrase I use far too often is...

"Apparently", "actually" or "indeed".

I wish people would take more notice of...

The bigger picture. It's easy to go about your life being insular.

The most surprising thing that happened to me was...

I was driving down the motorway and rang my friend and they were in the car behind me.

A common misperception of me is...

That I am young. They don't deduce it from my personality because I'm highly intelligent!

I'm good at...

Capital cities, Scrabble, driving and bluffing.

I'm very bad at...

Questionnaires.

You know me as a presenter but in a truer life I'd have been an...

Architect. I like interiors as much as exteriors but "interior designer" just sounds naff as a job.

I am not a politician but...

My sister is. There's enough wealth in the world that no one should go without.

In a nutshell, my philosophy is:

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today is a gift: the present.
