What is your favourite Bingo Game?
Spotlight - Big jackpot. What more can I say?

Who is your favourite Celebrity?
Bette Midler. Her career is entertaining and colourful from appearing in New York bath houses, to Burlesque, to hit hollywood movies, being signed by Disney, performing sell out concerts, comedy shows and having her own Charity Restoration Project. Recently Lady Gaga used her material in her show so I guess she is also inspirational.

Tell us something interesting about you...
Depends what you class as interesting I guess but I founded my own music business 6 years ago which is going really well, and have been DJing since I was 18. Oh, and most of my relatives are Bermudan!

What is your favourite music?
I love my 80s music, Chart, Dance and Commerical House music. Get me a good dance remix and I'm all over the dancefloor. My favourite bands or artists include September, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Kylie, Whitney, David Guetta, Polina Griffith.

What is your favourite film?
Gosh so many out there. High on my list are ‘The Lives of Others', ‘What Dreams May Come', ‘Goodbye Lenin', ‘Stand by Me', ‘The Goonies'...the list goes on! What's yours? Get in the chat room and let me know.

What is the best concert you have been to?
A big charity fundraiser about 10 years ago with Elton John, Steps, Five, Weather Girls, Pet Shops Boys, Spice Girls, George Michael, Ultra Nate, Texas, Belinda Carlise and Kim Wilde - it was amazing! 

What is your favourite holiday destination?
That's a tough one. I celebrated my 30th in the Maldives which was paradise - beautiful crystal clear blue water, diving, a dolphin safari, swimming with sea turtles and just relaxing on the white sand beach. On the other hand, I've visited Hong Kong and it was an amazing city for culture and experience. It's a great combination of city and island life and is very clean.

What is your lucky number?
I'll say 16 as that is the day I was born on.  

What's your favourite food?
Chinese, yum yum. Shredded beef, fried rice, noodles, sweet and sour chicken or pork. My mouth is watering just writing this.

Tell us something about you...
I am the youngest of three, with two sisters who both live in Scotland. One works for the Police force and the other in the Prison service. Both my parents live in Yorkshire, and sometimes my mother pops online to check how I look. My hobbies include travelling, eating out, clubbing, listening to music and spending time with my Jackadoodle dog Rupert.
