HOBBIES/INTERESTS?

The holy trinity of fitness, nutrition and reading.

WHAT DO YOU USE YOUR PHONE FOR MOST?

Predictably, Snapchat and social media.

WHAT?S MOST IMPORTANT IN A PHONE, AND WHY?

High quality camera, long battery life and buckets of storage for selfies! I couldn’t get over the quality and picture resolution of the Samsung Galaxy S7 – it leaves all the others way at the back of the class.

YOUR PERFECT WEEKEND?

It starts with a serious workout in the gym. Then I’m game for shopping with the girls, followed by drinks, a chilled-out Sunday at a food market, and eating loads of healthy yums!

BEST CHRISTMAS PRESSIE EVER?

A bike from Santa.?It was luminous green, and I loved it.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO FIND UNDER THE TREE?THIS YEAR?

I’d love one of those smart, 4K Ultra HD curved Samsung TVs. Actually, if I had a TV like that, I might never go out again.

WHAT WILL YOU REMEMBER 2016 FOR?

It will be the?year I wrote my first book, Flabyrinth (Gill Books)… and then became a bestselling author – a dream come true!
