What do you like doing on your day off?
Take the opportunity to be lazy or plan something to do that night with friends.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
I'd love to wake up to a French breakfast in Paris. I think they're really yummy.

What has been your proudest moment?
Probably when I got my GCSE results, I did much better than I'd expected.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
My family and I were to get a flight to London one morning and it happened to be the morning terrorists tried to hijack 20 planes. Fortunately they didn't succeed, but the panic and atmosphere at the airport was pretty scary.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
Just casual, really.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Faint. Then I'd probably take myself on a trip around the world, donate some to charities, then settle myself down in a mansion.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I was out one night and a guy tried to talk to me but because it was the middle of the dancefloor and I was dancing like a maniac I didn't see him and headbutted him on the nose by accident. I felt awful.

What music do you like?
A good variety, I like some pop and rock music but mainly hip-hop and dance.

What sports person do you most admire?
Rio Ferdinand, I read his book and he did a lot to raise awareness about knife crime in London.

Describe your best ever holiday.
I went to Rome one summer and it was very different -the ruins were incredible and the heat was unbearable at times. I'd love to go to New York because it would be great for shopping and nightlife.

What is your greatest ambition?
I don't have one main one to be honest. Just to go to university and travel to see as much of the world as I can.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Probably Pink because I think we'd get along, she has a great sense of humour and I reckon she'd be a laugh on a night out.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My iPod, lots of water and a camel I suppose.
