Chat Host: Julie


Meet Julie

The only way is David Essex for this mum of five!


If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’d love to go on a cruise to the Caribbean Island – and I’d spend all day on the beach being waited on hand and foot - my idea of bliss!

What’s the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?
Funniest thing was probably when I walked into a small barrier at my little girl’s school. I thought there was no one watching, but turned around and a crowd of 5 and 6 year olds were staring at me open mouthed – can laugh about it now but it really wasn’t funny at the time.

What do you like most about your job as a Chat Host?
I love the fact that I get to talk as much as I like, and I’m lucky as I work nights so I can take my little girl to and from school.

As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a teacher but there was too much studying and didn’t have the patience so I had my own brood of children - ended up with 5 girls and 8 grandchildren, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I’d love to stop everyone everywhere arguing and fighting. I like to think I have the power to do that with my children but it doesn’t work!

If you could have dinner with five famous people from history, who would they be?
David Essex: my childhood idol (and not so childhood idol!)
Tony Christie: I love his music.
Shane Richie: lovely funny man, he would definitely liven things up.
Florence Nightingale: so caring, she must have been an amazing person.
John Major: always thought there was something about him, not sure what though!
