What's your favourite restaurant and what do you like about it?

Chateau La Chaire in Jersey. Watching the sea thundering in while eating the most amazing food is a truly unforgettable experience.

Do you prefer healthy food or junk food? Healthy food, but do have the occasional blow out, when needs must.

Have you ever sent back or

complained about a meal? What was it? Where was it? And why did you send it back? The last meal I sent back was in Cornwall this year - a bowl of mussels. The portion was really small, the mussels tiny and like rubber. (I am a bit critical about food, having been a hotel inspector).

What would you request as your final meal? Good old bangers and mash with onion gravy.

What's your favourite tipple?

A large G&T on a hot summer's day.

What would you rescue from your house if it was burning down?

My photo album put together by my

children and partner for my 40th.

What's your fantasy car... and what do you actually drive? Fantasy car, Porsche Speedster, a real classic Sunday afternoon drive, actual car a Volvo V50 - and no, it's not an old man's car

What gadgets do you carry around with you? Mobile, Tom Tom GPS

system and a Blackberry.

What did you think of the last film you saw at the cinema? Pirates of the Caribbean, very good.

What are your pet hates?

Rudeness and untidiness.

What's the best holiday you've ever had? Ice climbing in Sweden. It was

really cold but climbing a frozen waterfall while seeing the water crashing down behind it was amazing.

What's your motto for life? Work hard, play hard, spend time with family, and treat others as I want to be treated.
