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

At 10 past two, I've just come off air and I'd be walking to Konditor and Cook cake shop. When we finish work we go there.

A phrase I use far too often...

"Good call."

I wish people would take more notice of...

What I say rather than how I say it.

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

Learning the can-can in Paris with the Moulin Rouge girls.

A common misperception of me is...

That I am a fairly serious person. In fact I have a hugely defined sense of comedy and the absurd.

I am not a politician but...

I was once, alas, engaged to one.

I'm good at...

Food: reading food, eating food, talking food, prepping food, dreaming food.

I'm very bad at...

Saying no to worthy causes, which causes problems with my agent.

In moments of weakness I...

Can usually eat a whole box of chocolates.

In another life I'd have been...

A full-time writer. I do a lot of writing anyway but I'd love to do more.

The best age to be is...

The age I am now.

The ideal night out is...

A night in with my partner. Is that allowed?

In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:

I have several philosophies. My biggest one is to treat others as you wish to be treated, which comes down to respect.
