The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

Love.

“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you going to love somebody else?”

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2018?

Who is she?

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

Definitely not him. I hate politics. I’d say: My future husband. Where is he?

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

To be adopted by Madonna.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the state of the financial system?

It is terrible. We have a vanishing middle class.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

‘Retard’.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I support anything to do with homeless LGBTQ youth and animals.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

I’m sorry but I don’t understand the question.

My parents and all my siblings with their families.

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

In the most lush and exotic natural habitat with tonnes of trees and waterfalls or by the ocean. I’d have the best steak and fries with the most expensive bottle of red wine possible.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

I don’t drink much really.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

Tea.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

I enjoy concerts because I love seeing how music makes the people come together. Thank you Madonna.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

E-Jay Randolph, my mentor.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

RuPual’s Drag Race.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A cross with a naked Jesus hanging on it wearing a Star of David pendant around his neck. Jesus would have a tattoo in Arabic on his left pec of the most important line in the Quran, the line that you would need to say to become Muslim. I am interested in inclusion.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A Tesla.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

I’m a baby in a grown ass man’s body. It’s a good thing.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

A framed picture of my beautiful mother.
