I have a range of interests, including power walking, theatre, music and water skiing. I am a district bridge master. I enjoy general knowledge quizzes and had a recent near death experience with Anne Robinson when I appeared on the on the Weakest Link. I am no stranger to television and radio work, appearing in my own show with the BBC and radio.
I am an accomplished and competitive cook; I have competed nationally and internationally winning various prestigious awards. Indeed, such is my interest in food that I carried out a scientific study (PhD) using a special recipe for bran muffins containing controlled ingredients!
