Male Singer

LUTHER VANDROSS
Luther Vandross has played such an inspirational part with my love and passion for music.  I will never tire of his voice and was very sad when he died.  I have a good collection of his songs, his ballads being my favourite of his varying styles. His version of The Impossible Dream still makes me tearful when I’m alone and absorb every note.

Female Singer

KAREN CARPENTER

I love Karen Carpenter’s voice.  You appreciate the clarity and crispness of her voice most when wearing headphones. My favourite song of The Carpenters is Rainy Days and Mondays.

For me, Karen Carpenter is the absolute best singer ever.

Group or Duo

GALLAGHER & LYLE

The best for me is listening to the ballads of Gallagher and Lyle. I think they peaked in the late 70s and my favourite song by them is ‘Missing You.’

Song Of All Time

IT MUST BE LOVE BY LABI SIFFRE

This song means so much to me and was probably the first record that I ever played, at the age of around 6.  It was in my Grandmother’s record collection and the most amazing part, I have never grown out of the song.  If it’s ever on the radio, I feel that my whole world, mind, soul and body stops to listen to it until it’s finished.  Each time it takes me back to those days when I’d spend hours alone in front of Gran’s old gramophone, playing every record she had.  It’s now currently set as the ringtone on my mobile when Jezz calls.

TV Programme

HEARTSTOPPER

The story line of Nick and Charlie is so compelling. The seasons cover every aspect of teenagers experiencing their sexuality, and there’s a good-varied reaction of their parents and peers.

Movie

GREASE

Grease has been the one film that I can watch, time and time again and still enjoy almost as much as the first time. Stockard Channing’s Rizzo is my favourite character.

Other favourite Movies

Actor

JASON WATKINS

Jason Watkins is phenominal. Playing the role of Simon Henderson in the Channel mini-series ‘Coma’ was compelling. He played the part so realistically. Jonas Armstrong, who played Paul Franklin, was a gangster-style villain and Jason’s character was petrified of him. I was totally captivated by his fear throughout the four episodes.

Other favourite Actors

Actress

SIOBHAN FINNERAN

For me, Siobhan Finneran is one of the best British comedy actresses. Her role in Benidorm was more than believable. 

Other favourite Actresses

Comedian

KENNY EVERETT

My hero of all time and the memory of him alive, and well, is everything I’d love to be.  Kenny is also my most favourite DJ of all time.

Comedienne

VICTORIA WOOD

For me, no-one was ever better for observational comedy than Victoria Wood.  The most respected funny woman of all time.

Voice

TONY ROBINSON

Personally, I find Tony Robinson’s voice the most interesting. Anything he ever reports on, is always fascinating. He just has the best voice for presenting.

Most Fanciable Man

NYLE DIMARCO

This gorgeous man is so lovely. His character as a model and dancer is stunning to watch on telly. He is also deaf, and I’m so inspired how it never seems to affect his ability to live life to the full.

Other favourite Fanciable Men

Most Fanciable Woman

JACLYN SMITH

Since my teenage years of watching the original series of Charlie’s Angels, Jaclyn Smith has always been the most perfect looking woman in my life.  Her beauty and character name Kelly Garrett were the reasons for choosing Kelly as my daughter’s first name.

Other favourite Fanciable Women

Radio Presenter/DJ (Living)

NICK ABBOT

Nick Abbot is currently on LBC.  He is a very dry-witted presenter and finds everything to complain about.

Hot Food

HOMEMADE CHICKEN CURRY

Taken from a recipe that Dad taught us very early on in life, and since then adding chicken stock and coconut, this dish is not only extremely tasty but always reminds me of having tea at home together, normally Wednesday evenings. This dish is just as nice with chips instead of rice.

Biscuit

McVITIE’S HOBNOBS DARK CHOC

For quite a few years, it’s always been the Border Oat Crumbles (half chocolate) but McVitie’s have done it… with their dark chocolate version of chocolate Hobnobs.
