  1. What is the top thing on your bucket list?

I think it’s some way off, but would just love to perform in the West End in musical theatre or sing somewhere like the Albert Hall.

  1. What is your favourite film?

Honestly, ask my family, I am totally rubbish with films and tend to fall asleep!  My favourite film that I actually stayed awake in and have watched several times is the Queen movie, Bohemian Rhapsody.

  1. If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

I’d go for a Sloth – my son’s favourite animal, and I reckon they live a really chilled out life!
