What's your favourite Gloucestershire day out?

Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail followed by tea and cake at Harts Barn in Longhope.

And your favourite place to eat out in the county?

The Bell at Sapperton.

What's the worst job you've ever had?

Selling aerial photography door to door.

Have you got any unusual habits?

If I had I certainly wouldn't share them with you!

Who is your hero and why?

Napoleon Hill, American author who wrote about personal success. Loved his book Think and Grow Rich. He is a great motivator and pioneer in the field of personal development and of course the Dalai Lama. A true inspiration.

What book are you reading at the moment or tell us your favourite?

Either With Nails by Richard E Grant (Acerbic wit at its best and made me laugh out loud on the tube – very embarrassing!) or The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom. Really thought-provoking, making you realise the impact you have on other people's lives.

What was the last film you watched?

The Boy in Striped Pyjamas. Very clever and understated film with a real shock factor that leaves you completely silent at the end.

First single/record you ever bought?

David Soul, Don't Give Up On Us. Huge fan of Starsky and Hutch as a kid.

Facebook or Twitter? (And what is your twitter handle/name?)

Facebook. Twitter is for celebs. My life is not THAT interesting!
