What is your home town? 

I’m from Southport, but I live in Chorley, which is much more convenient for accessing the motorways.

What are your hobbies? 

I love to travel but since adopting our dogs, I’ve not travelled as much as I would like to, but that’s fine by me as I would miss my dogs too much!

I also love music, theatre and comedy.

Do you have any other interests?

Taking my dogs for walks and watching them have so much fun.

I qualified as a scuba diving instructor but I’ve not done any diving since moving back up north.

Favourite food? 

Sweet potato fries… doesn’t really matter what they are served with.

If you could invite 3 people for a meal at your house, who would it be?

Sean Lock, and Bret & Jemaine from the Flight of the Conchords

If you could go anywhere in the world on holiday where would it be?

Madagascar for an extended wildlife safari and conservation trip.

If you weren’t a Podiatrist, what would you like to do/be?

A vet probably.

Interesting fact or something not many people knows about you?
