Saturday 15 March 2008
Hambleton-Jones, 38, became a household name thanks to her Channel 4 programme '10 Years Younger'. She has written numerous books, including 'Top to Toe: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming Who You Want to Be'. She will be appearing at the Vitality Show at Olympia from 27-30 March.
If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...
Working on my next book – I'm right at the beginning of it.
A phrase I use far too often...
"I'm really sorry, I'm running 10 minutes late."
A common misperception of me is....
I'm cold and critical – but in fact I'm far more passionate than people think.
I wish people would take more notice of...
The most surprising thing that happened to me was...
Getting the email asking if I would be interested in presenting Ten Years Younger.
I am not a politician but...
I'd stop tower developments in residential areas.
I'm good at...
Remembering pretty much everything.
I'm very bad at...
Waking up in the morning. I've never been the sprightly and alert type.
The ideal night out is ...
Going to a friend's or just hanging round at home.
In moments of weakness I...

You know me as a presenter but in truer life I'd have been...
A hairdresser or a ballet dancer.
The best age to be is...
My age right now is wonderful. I know myself better than when I was younger.
In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:
If you want something, go for it.
