Friday night gladrags or a night on the sofa?

These days it’s a night on the sofa – if I can get near the Sky remote! It’s a rarity. I love to watch movies. I do my share of going out at night with my live shows!

A super Saturday?
Getting out on the motorcycle, meeting with the family at a cool gastro-gaff and playing some kind of grass game afterwards. Nothing too strenuous, though!

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
I haven’t been snorkelling for ages, so I’d go to Bermuda or somewhere like that. There’s nothing better than eating fish right by the sea, nice and charcoal-grilled, with local fruit. 

Sunday best?
A big fry-up with banana fried in the pan, pineapple juice, plenty of coffee and my Flamenco DVD on the TV.
