What is your favourite gemstone?

Amethyst . Purple has always been my favourite colour and the affordability of this beautiful gem makes it a great one to collect.

If you could sum up your look and aesthetic in three words, what would they be?

I had to ask my friends to answer this one for fear of coming across as deluded! They answered : Classic, stylish and sometimes elegant…

Any fashion or jewellery tips?

It is important to know your shape , which colours suit you best and to trust your instincts. With your jewellery collection, make it varied and enjoy every piece whether precious or costume.

Who is your ultimate style icon?

I think it is a combination of iconic women: Judi Dench, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Vivien Leigh.

Any embarrassing on-screen moments?

There are a few from over the years but the ones that stand out are not putting the lid on a food processor and ending up being covered in the coleslaw that I was preparing, driving a remote control car into the set Christmas tree and sending the whole tree cascading down in front of me and worst of all the dreadful Karaoke singing I inflicted on my audience on numerous occasions. I apologise for the latter!
