Describe a typical day for you?
If I am at home then its normally going to be overrun by the boys! If I am lucky I’ll get a chance to have a work out in the morning whilst Wayne is on dad duty – but otherwise, I’ll be running around trying to keep up with the kids. If I am working I am often out of the house pretty early and can be back late, so after a long day I like to have a soak in the bath and relax as much as possible. It’s nice to be able to pamper myself, taking off the make-up from the day and really cleansing and moisturising – I love Olay Hydration + Radiant Glow. Pantene actually has an amazing new 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner that helps keeps my hair nice and shiny.
What’s in your handbag/satchel?
I never go anywhere without my phone, but that’s pretty normal. I always need a good lip balm and eye drops to keep me going throughout the day. And I will probably find something the boys have dropped in there by accident!
What do you wish you’d known at the start of your career you now know?
I think sometimes we don’t enjoy experiences as much as we should when we are doing them – especially if they are really hard work. If I could go back and tell myself anything it would be that, and also not to worry too much…what will be will be.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
That’s a difficult question as sometimes it’s hard to see what’s going to happen tomorrow, let alone 5 years down the road. I look forward to seeing how my boys grow up and hope that I will still be lucky enough to be doing a job that I love.
What advice would you give a budding singer/presenter?
Never give up. Sometimes it will seem like the odds are against you, but perseverance does pay off.
Finally, happiness is…
…Very personal. It’s not one thing, but a number of things that come together and make you smile.
