What do you like doing on your day off?
I enjoy going shopping with my mum and then in the evening going out with my friends and husband.

Choose your favourite meal?
It would be seafood in a beach front restaurant in the Carribean.

What has been your proudest moment?
Probably when I passed the finishing line at the Belfast marathon when myself and my family did the relay for Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.

Most frightening moment of your life?
It was in Busch Gardens, Florida, I went on a rollercoaster called Gwazi which was quite old and rickety and didn't realise just how scary it was going to be - my legs actually buckled as soon as I got off it.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
Smart but casual.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
I would buy a really nice house, a fancy car and I would definitely help out my family and probably quit work if I could.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
It was probably the day I was leaving my wheely bin out and I tripped and fell in the middle of the street. I then had to go to hospital and tell them what had happened. It turned out I had severely sprained my ankle.

What music do you like?
I actually like all types of music but my favourite artist is definitely Madonna, whom I've loved since I was a child.

What sports person do you most admire?
David Beckham, just because I believe he is a really good role model in everything he does and because he does quite a lot for charities.

Describe your best ever holiday.
That was my Honeymoon to Florida. My dream holiday would be to Australia or New Zealand.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
To be successful in work and to be happy in everything I do throughout my life.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
The Top Gear gang just because I believe they would be so much fun. I would love to actually be the Stig and get to test drive all the really fast cars.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
Mobile, Ipod and suncream.
