My 3 daughters, Sunderland winning and a large glass of prosecco
Favourite sound in the whole world?
Christmas music. I love Christmas songs, I’d play them in the summer if my husband would let me

Lionel Richie, "Dancing on the Ceiling".....always gets me up!

Take That at the Stadium of Light when they returned to their original line up with Robbie
Favourite movie of all time and why?
It has to be Pretty Woman! I gotta go shopping now ;)
Who is the best celebrity you’ve met and why?
Alesha Dixon. I interviewed her when she asked if there was anywhere near she could get food as she was hungry. I offered her some of my peanut butter on toast and she was over the moon! We sat and chatted for ages with a cuppa and toast, she’s so down to earth
What is your favourite thing to do/place to go on Wearside?
I love going to watch Sunderland when I am not on air. My family are all season ticket holders. In fact my Grandma had a season ticket when she was 90 year old
Tell me one thing about yourself that nobody knows.
I have a weird phobia about shaking people's hands, so much so I often fake an injury or sneeze. I know it’s bizarre but…

She’s probably not here, she’s probably gone shopping!
