Out of everything you have done in your career so far what has been the most memorable.
Probably Dancing on Ice. I had never done anything so physical before, and I really enjoyed it. I loved that it was such a challenge and the rewards were so much fun. I remember squealing with glee the first time I did an overhead lift, and being amazing that I could skate backwards. I also made a lot of friends and even met an ex boyfriend on the show, which just made it all the more fun when we all went on tour together!
What is the hardest thing about being a celebrity?
Ha, this question makes me cringe! I don’t consider myself a ‘celebrity’, I consider my parents to be, and the attention I get is merely a sort of aftertaste of their achievements. That in itself is probably the hardest part for me, that even when I achieve something great, a lot of people are angry about it because of my standing in life because of my parents’ success. That kind of sucks.
What advice would you give to a pupil at school that wants to be famous and on the television?
I would tell them to get some work experience lined up ASAP and keep showing up whenever you possibly can. Experience is everything in the world of television and it will get you further, quicker.
There are so many diets advertised in the media. How do you know what we should be eating to lose weight?
Common sense. Eat clean, healthy foods like chicken, fish, veg, nuts, eggs etc and don’t go mental. This way, your body can use your food for fuel and you aren’t overloading it, giving it opportunity to gain.
Diet or Exercise! Which has the most impact when trying to lose weight?
Diet. Absolutely always diet.
If someone has tried everything to lose weight what should they do?
Stop trying everything and do it properly. Exercise 4-6 days a week. Clean up your diet. Keep an eye on your portion sizes so your calories are in check. STAY CONSISTENT AND STOP GIVING UP.
What inspired you to start fitness fondue?
I fell in love with fitness, mainly weight lifting, and I wanted to tell everyone about it!
How have apps helped people’s pursuit of ultimate fitness? Are people better with them or without them? Which apps and gadgets to you use?
Apps are a perfect tool for training. Fitness apps include timers, demos, and visual aids. You don’t need a PT and you don’t need to worry that you’re doing something wrong or not at all. It’s a great tool to have. I love MyFitnessPal, it allows me to keep track of my macros and calories daily and keeps me consistent and on track.
If you want to have a great day then what 5 things do you find yourself doing?
Training, cooking and talking to my boyfriend (who I rarely get to see) usually amount to me having a good day!
What are your top 5 things to do in London?
Go for a champagne breakfast at the food hall in Harrods. Have a crepe in Hampstead Village and walk over the heath. Go for dinner at Bone Daddies in Soho, it’s the best Japanese food in London in my humble opinion. Get down to Bloomsbury Lanes to have a night of pizza, bowling, drinking and general amazingess. Sleep at The Ritz because you only live once!
