Beverley Knight

Soul and R&B singer Beverley, 38, not only has a glittering career but was also awarded an MBE for services to music and charity. She lives in North London with her fiancé James, 35…

bev My teen idol was…

Probably Prince. He was remarkable and contributed greatly to racial inclusion. He inspired me to become a professional singer. Many years later I actually got to work with him and it was mind-blowing, proving that dreams really can come true!

If I could go back in time I’d tell my 16-year-old self…

“It’s great to be you.” At 16 I felt the glasses I wore did nothing for me. I felt anxious about how I appeared in relation to others my age.

They’re not good for me but I really love eating…

Sweets – put a bag anywhere near me and I’ll devour them in minutes!

My favourite way to spend a weekend would be…

Going back to Wolverhampton to see my family as they always keep me grounded. I also love spending time with my fiancé James and his family. James works as a gaffer, which means he looks after the lighting on television and in television ads and events. We can both get incredibly busy at times but I love those moments when we can just relax together.

My favourite place in the whole world has got to be…

Besides Wolverhampton, it would have to be Salvador in Brazil, for the dramatic scenery and lovely people. I’m determined to go back soon.
