What is your earliest memory?
I think I was about four years old and I remember my brother and I lying on our beds, listening to the barges going up and down the Grand Union Canal at the back of our family’s flat in Middlesex. It was a very comforting sound – even hearing them now will take me back to those early days.
How would you spend your perfect day?
It would be such a treat to wake up late after a good night’s sleep. Because I did breakfast TV for ten years, I still wake up at 4am most mornings. I’d listen to the Today programme on Radio 4 all the way through, and have a bath. Then I’d hit the shops. I adore pottering around bookshops and food shops and I’d shop till I dropped! After a lovely dinner out, I’d come back and watch a film with my feet up and a cup of tea.
