Liz McClarnon, 25, is the only original member still in girl band Atomic Kitten. She is currently fronting Sugar Puffs Hive Action campaign

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

I've got the day off, so I'd be enjoying a nice lunch.

I'm fronting Sugar Puff's Hive Action charity campaign because...

I really like charities so I volunteered for this one. The aim is to raise money for beehives in Africa.

A common misperception of me is...

That I'm a pushover because I'm quiet. I always stand up for the things that I believe in, especially my friends and family.

I'm good at...

Match-making. Or maybe I just think I'm good at it - no one has got married yet! Tee hee.

But I'm very bad at...

Going to the orthodontist. I went for the first time in three months yesterday, even though I'm getting a brace fitted soon.

I wish people would take more notice of...

Charities, especially Hive Action.

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

My zipper opening while I was talking to Prince Charles and Prince William at Buckingham Palace during the Queen's Jubilee. I'm not sure if they noticed but it was nice of Shirley Bassey to fix it for me in the Ladies'.

The ideal night out is...

Going out to bars with my mum and all my close friends.

In moments of weakness I...

Buy things I can't afford. Last week I almost bought a convertible Jaguar just because I liked it. If I hadn't phoned a friend who talked me out of it, I'd definitely have bought it.

You know me as a singer, but in a truer life I'd...

Be a barrister. Law used to be my obsession while singing was just a hobby.

The best age to be is...

25. I'm 25 now and I love it. But if you ask me next year, I'll say 26.

In a nutshell, my philosophy is...

If you can't spell it, don't eat it. You won't catch me on I'm A Celebrity... eating bugs.
