If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
Pizza at Pizzarellys because they do the best pizzas.

What has been your proudest moment?
My proudest moment happened quite recently when I was awarded a prefect badge. It made me proud because teachers have to nominate you to become a prefect and they thought I deserved it.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
My most frightening moment is actually something I laugh about now. I was staying at my Auntie and Uncle's caravan. We were watching Sixth Sense and at the part the girl grabs the boy's ankle from under the bed my Auntie grabbed my ankle and I squealed like a girl.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
I have quite a casual taste in clothes. Jeans and T-shirt is usually what I wear.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Take my family on holiday to Disney Florida. It's somewhere we always wanted to go.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
There are a lot to choose from but my most embarrassing moment has to be when I fell in Primary school and got my yoghurt all over my face.

What music do you like?
I listen to anything that is on the radio. I'm not very picky.

What sports person do you most admire?
I don't watch a lot of sports so I guess none.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
My best holiday was when my family and I went to London because there was so much to do. My dream holiday would be to Disneyland Florida because I've wanted to go since I can't remember when.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
My only ambition is that I have a job I am well paid for and I enjoy doing. I don't know what that is yet.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Michael McIntyre as he is my favourite comedian and I always like a good laugh.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My bed because I don't think I could live without it. My laptop for Facebook and a boat to get off the island.
