Currently Daybreak's Entertainment Editor, I have been a TV and radio presenter for 20 years.
I've worked my way through three Prime Ministers, hauled myself up more red carpets than any A-lister and have hundreds of hours of live TV on under my belt, which fluctuates between a loose 34 inches and an optimistic 32.
I've also hosted quiz shows, beauty pageants, animal roadshows and cookery shows amongst other career highlights and after two decades on air I don't regret for a single moment not finishing my law degree. Or, for that matter, my performance on Stars In Their Eyes.
I’m best known for: Bawdy banter, a twinkle in the eye and asking for sauce on the side
The proudest moment of my career is: Receiving a standing ovation on Strictly Come Dancing for my paso doble. I think the audience were getting ready for a sharp exit because of the explosive pyrotechnics.
The first thing I do in the morning is: Curse. Check my email. Curse again. Then shower, shave, dress and make breakfast. In exactly 22 minutes.
My favourite breakfast is: Porridge with Manuka honey, followed by an effervescent vitamin, cod liver oil and milk thistle. I pop more pills than Barbara Cartland ever did.
The most famous person in my phonebook is: Jackie Collins
The actor who would play me in a film about Daybreak is: Anchorman star Will Ferrell, apparently. The young team on Daybreak think I am his doppelganger.
My favourite memory from working on breakfast TV is: High-fiving Stevie Wonder at the end of an interview because we’d had such a great time. It’s a mistake you only make once.
If I wasn’t presenting on Daybreak I’d be: Watching it at home, feeling bitter
You’d be surprised to learn that: I can string sentences together for longer than the few minutes I am on air every morning
The one thing I couldn’t live without is: Laughter. It’s life’s greatest shock absorber.
