What’s bringing you joy at the moment? Watching spring arrive, with the blossom, the earlier sunrise and brighter skies.

Whose mind do you wish you could change? Many world leaders…

Advice you’d give to your 15-year-old self? Love your body more and be kinder to it.

What could you have been arrested for? If I told you I would have to kill you…

Best life hack you can share with us? Ice cold showers in the morning to boost your mental and physical health.

Country or city? I love the sea and the peace of the countryside, but I also love the buzz of the city and the many opportunities to dance.

Where do you go to get away from it all? Home with my parents. Walking around Grantchester Meadows, eating a yummy roast on Sunday and taking years to find something to watch on Netflix. Reading all the weekend newspapers and listening to Radio 4. Sleeping like a baby in my own bed.

What are you most looking forward to? A long hot summer full of dancing with my friends.

You wouldn’t know it but… I used to play the cello really well.

The book you wished you’d written? Anything by Zadie Smith, but I’d be paying myself far too big a compliment to think I could ever write like that. Her books are pure magic; I learn a lot from reading them.

The film you wished you’d starred in? Lara Croft – she’s pretty bad ass.

Your greatest failure? Nothing is a failure… Only a lesson!

Your epitaph would read… Keep on dancing.
