The book I'm reading currently
I'm not actually reading any books myself at the moment. We're reading Peepo to Ed and a couple of Emma Dodd books, one is Wish and one is When.

A book that had a big impact on me
A book called The White Squadron, Dorothy Desana. I read it when I was a teenager, it's about the war against drugs in Africa. It follows a young girl who seemed to join up with some people who were involved with that, and it was just really moving. I went to read it again when I was older and I couldn't believe it had such an impact because I wasn't as moved.

My desert island reading
I'd take the Bible actually because I've never read it and I've always felt I should've, and it's quite long.

My choice of lifetime magazine subscription
A house building and renovation one. I want to build a house.

My must-see film
Probably Schindler's List.

My guilty-pleasure telly
Made in Chelsea, my husband doesn't even know that! He'd be horrified.

My radio turn-on and turn-off
I like The News Quiz on Radio 4.

I can't stand Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1.

My favourite work of art
I like David Hockney. Bigger Trees Near Warter, we managed to get a print of that. We used to live up in Leeds and we went to Saltaire, Salts Mill, which is where he shows a lot of stuff because that's his neck of the woods. That's how we got into his stuff.

The weekend paper I am most likely to pick up
The Guardian. It's very unlikely I pick it up now.

The section of the weekend paper I read first
I always read the family section.

A piece of music that makes me smile
Let's go with Beyonce's Crazy In Love.

A piece of music that makes me cry
Jerusalem.
