Sticking on Radio 4’s Today, getting the kids up, then lying on the bed for 15 minutes checking my emails to reset – I’m not really a morning person!
Often involves scrolling for ages on Instagram. Phones in the bedroom don’t kill romance – intimacy breaks down because something else is going wrong in the relationship. My boyfriend and I have a giggle over what’s online and it sparks chat. We recently put a TV in our bedroom, too, and it’s brilliant as we go to bed earlier more often, and are physically closer because we’re in bed.
Never forget I love them. You can feel when someone loves you. It’s about being interested in what they’re doing, even if it’s the fifth time I’ve seen [the kids] do a crap magic trick! I want them to know they’re so loved, not for achievement or because they look a certain way, but because they’re wonderful.
The more you have sex, the more you want it. Women deserve to have fun sex – if it’s gone stale, address it. We learn how to be better at our careers or good at a hobby but we don’t do that with sex. My suggestion is to get interested in sex. Buy a book, read about it, get a new technique. Don’t be intimidated by it.
Being kissed on the neck. It’s ‘go’ time! Sex is not just about orgasm. It’s all of the things around it – the touching, the closeness, the skin-on-skin and being allowed to run free with what’s going on in your head.
Spag bol. Everyone’s trying to cut down on meat consumption and a really easy way is to use 40% good quality butcher mince and 60% Quorn mince. Boom! I’ve slightly lost my mojo for cooking since I was on Celebrity Masterchef [in 2016] – I was practising until 2am every night!
Taking myself out for lunch. I read the papers, stare into space. I’ve learnt to stop running around like a mad woman. It’s about treating myself with love.
Dieting! The first time I went on one I was 16, on holiday in America and decided I was fat – I was sporty with muscular legs, but all the girls in magazines were so thin. I then started to learn the calorie content of every single food on the planet. It’s a different world now – thank God for athletes like Jessica Ennis!
Being really thankful. It’s the ultimate magic trick.
Falling in love again and having hot sex! When I divorced three years ago I didn’t expect any of this was possible. I’m not saying everyone should get divorced but there’s a silver lining!
