Personal Quotes (8)

I have boobs and hips and I dress to accommodate them. That's not going to change. (Speaking in 2008)
(On her experiences of working with Stephen Mulhern) Working with Stephen is certainly a lot of fun - Although I'm sure that, if he had his way, he'd probably want to saw me in half every week! As it is, I've lost count of how many times he's cut me in half, chopped my head off, stuck spikes through me or had me floating fifteen feet off the ground. But, apart from that, it's fun and I never know what's coming next.
Box sets and Netflix suit my lifestyle. I'm obsessed with Lie to Me (2009) at the moment. I love Tim Roth so much, it's ridiculous.
The first time I met Joan Collins I thought, "I have to look fabulous, because she knows how to dress and always looks fantastic."
I do think it's a shame there's no live Saturday-morning children's TV any more. Most presenters now - me and Reggie Yates, Fearne Cotton, Phil Schofield, Cat Deeley, Ant and Dec - came from kids' telly. So you do wonder where the next generation will come from.
I don't like a sad ending. I have even watched Titanic (1997) and stopped the DVD before they hit the iceberg. Why put myself through it? I'd much rather watch a drama or a film with a happy ending.
[to Rod Stewart] There's many an autobiography about you unofficial.
I don't mind a hairy chest, by the way boys. I think there's nothing wrong with a hairy chest.
