Chat Host: Shannon
A wannabe pop star whose biggest hit was ‘getting down’ in the High Street!
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
To go back to Ko Phi Phi in Thailand. I went there for my honeymoon in 2009 and it truly is a paradise island. There are no cars on the island so everyone gets around on foot or by bike. You can only get there by boat and you can eat lobster for £16 – AMAZING!!!
What’s the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?
I fell over in front of a busload of people in a main high street. It was so embarrassing but probably hilarious to all of the people on the bus as I was carrying a shopping bag full of groceries when I fell and I ended up running after a tin of beans while limping!
What do you like most about your job as a Chat Host?
The chats I have with the players and the laughs we have - you can't beat the banter and a good gossip! And I love to build relationships with the players and find out what they are all about. I have a 1 year old daughter and I am constantly running around after her all day so when it's time for work I’m actually really glad to sit down and catch up with all the roomies.
As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
An actress or a popstar - I was an all singing, all dancing performer! I used to be in the school choir and was also part of a girl band in school. We thought we were amazing and wanted to be the next All Saints!
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Mind control – without a doubt! If I could change people’s way of thinking for the better it would be great. Everyone would be equals and I would make the rich give to the poor which would mean a lot less poverty and more peace in the world.
If you could have dinner with five famous people from history, who would they be?
