Jane Felstead: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks “Made in Chelsea’s” Jane Felstead: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

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

My conscience.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2013?

Abu Qatada being allowed to stay in the UK.

 

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

Being able to wear 6-inch heels all day long.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

The knowledge that I had paid all my Karma – and a wonderful eternity was assured.

 

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 banking crisis?

Too many well-paid people idly turning a blind eye.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“Y’know”.

 

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

Cancer charities and IFAW. I do also believe that having a cup of tea with an aged person and listening to people is most important.

 

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?

Use them as quietly as possible.

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

Rowan Atkinson, Clarissa Dickson Wright, Ronnie Wood and Maggie Smith.

 

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

It would have to be at Scalini in Walton Street, SW3. I’d have spaghetti vongole to start. This would be followed with filet mignon and then cheese and chocolate toffee treacle pudding with extra toffee. I’m going to die – bugger the cholesterol!

 

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

Gosh, well a stirrup cup can be at 10.30am – and if one’s a nervous rider it could be much earlier!

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

A Negroni.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

My eldest daughter’s. She always has a fascinating mix.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

Well I don’t actually know him – but the Dalai Lama.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Wonderful white bread cheese sandwiches with a can of Stella Artois.

 

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

A woman riding a grey horse, holding a sword in an unthreatening manner, but with a certain steeliness.

 

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

An aged Alfa sports.

 

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

I would love to be able to breakdance.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

An antique wooden carved teddy bear, two Cloisonné pots, an apophyllite crystal for repelling any negativity, a ridiculously large and ornate clock and three tiny antique books.
