I always felt sorry for the students who were asked to play sad, old characters.
I don't care who or what judges me, nothing's going to stop me from living my life how I choose.
I never believed I wouldn't make it - and perhaps that's why I've always found work. I've always stuck at everything I've ever done. I absolutely won't give up.
We are thrilled - it is scary and exciting.
Slightly embarrassing. I'd probably eaten too much dinner.
People have been able to see that as cheeky and as flirty as I am, I am not the dreadful slapper that the press used to portray me as. But it will probably all turn around and people will hate me again in a couple of years.
I am an optimist. I think, as bad as life sometimes gets, there is so much joy and so much good stuff, that there is a balance.
I have such a lovely life and I just never imagined that I would miscarry a baby.
I didn't go nightclubbing much as a teenager in Bournemouth because my friends and I didn't have the money - but we spent a lot of time on the beach, having barbecues, and running into the sea in the middle of the night.
I should have been out there having a wild time like all the other girls my age, but I wasn't. I was going home every night to what was, initially, a very happy marriage.
My mum loves cats so I took her to see the lion cubs which at about a year old are actually quite big. She wasn't scared at all and went straight over and kissed one on the mouth! She thought they were just like her pets at home.
My family are my priority but I've always had a strong work ethic and I like to be busy.
It is going to take a very brave man to love me.
In the past, I've thrown myself into work so much there's been very little room for anything else.
My dream is to have a gay son.
