Kelly McKenzieKELLY McKenzie, 32, from Lisburn, and her sister-in-law Bethany hope to go out to Haiti with Elim Missions, to assist in the Mango Tree Orphanage and the surrounding village. Kelly is married to Simon and they have two young girls daughters called Amy and Eva.

What do you like doing on your day off?
I would love to be doing things like getting facials and back massages, but usually my days off are spent cleaning the house and trips to the park with the kids.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
As long as it was cooked for me, I'm really not that fussy.

What has been your proudest moment?
Finally managing to give birth to my first daughter after a four day labour.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
Encountering a gigantic spider in my living room not long after moving to Lisburn. No one warned me the spiders were so big here!

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
I'd pay my own way to Haiti to help out in the Mango Tree Orphanage and the surrounding village. I'm currently fundraising to get out there later this year and it would be great to just have the money to go now. Other than that, I'd do all the work needing done to my house and splash out on a brilliant family holiday.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I've a tendency to do and say stupid things, so choosing just one thing is impossible.

What music do you like?
Anything by Take That.

What sports person do you most admire?
David Beckham of course.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
My best holiday was when I went to Portugal when I was 13. The people we met over there were brilliant craic and made it the best holiday ever. My dream holiday now would be taking the kids to Disneyworld, Florida.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
To get out to Haiti and do whatever I can to help the people get back on their feet. We all know the money donated internationally hasn't got through to the people who need it and so it's going to take charities, church groups, missionaries and others who just want to help to go and change things out there, one village at a time.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Any member of Take That or David Beckham.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
Suncream, sunglasses and a good book.
