What is your favourite food? Ravioli and fish fingers, though not together obviously.
What is your favourite holiday destination? Woolacombe in Devon or The Lake District.
What was the last book you read? Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel.
What is your favourite TV programme? The West Wing.
What is your favourite film? Good question – I like so many. Recently, Midnight in Paris.
What makes you smile? English dry wit – Have I Got News for You and Milton Jones’ one liners.
What is your biggest regret? Giving up history too early at school.
Who would your ideal dinner guests be? Steve Ovett, Jimmy Carter, Gordon Brown, Kristin Scott-Thomas and Stacey Kent or Coldplay for the entertainment.
What hobbies do you have? I love running. Otherwise reading or watching sport, particularly cricket.
What do you like about Bracknell Forest? The people. Bracknell never pretends to be what it isn’t. How much there is to do and for me the ease of getting out to run in the forest. It’s been a great place to bring up our family and to work.
What is the one thing you would change about Bracknell Forest? More life in the town centre in the evenings.
