The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. I loved it as a child, and my Mum bought me a copy for my birthday a few years ago.
What do you enjoy doing?
I have no spare time. But if I did, I’d do a cookery course – it’s something I need more than something I want! I’d also love to have time for a sign language course, and to read more.
What’s your idea of a perfect weekend?
Not doing any housework! It would have to be going up to Yorkshire with my family. Just the five of us, with no pressures and no agenda.
What can’t you live without?
Do you believe in love at first sight?
I think it’s more lust, to be honest, but I’d have to say yes.
What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
I was in that Halifax advert where there was a bridge made up of people. I had to somersault to the top and catch the globe – it was terrifying.
What’s been your silliest moment at QVC?
It has to be the inflatable reindeer. Dexter was playing with the remote control, and it went straight between my legs. That made it on to It’ll be Alright on the Night!
