HOW FIT ARE YOU
I do a lot of dancing, so I feel like I’m turning 30, not 40. I should do weights, but I’m not as obsessed with working out as I used to be. I love Kung Fu. I started doing it when I was 14 and being bullied.
IS YOUR DIET HEALTHY
Generally, I’m not that good — but I make the effort to have a salad before my main course. I love Italian food so have a lot of bruschetta and garlic bread.
YOUR WORST ILLNESS
I had meningitis five years ago, which was a very scary time. Thankfully it was diagnosed very quickly. I was in a marathon and was feeling really off — like someone had hit me over the head with a hammer. Everyone else around me just thought it was the flu, but I knew something was seriously wrong.
WOULD YOU HAVE PLASTIC SURGERY
I had my nose done years ago because there was a little hook on it that I really didn’t like and the kids used to tease me about it at school. I’ve also had Botox annually, just to stop those lines getting too deep. But, hey, I’m proud to have a few lines.
HAD ANYTHING REMOVED
I had to have emergency surgery two years ago. I’d been getting these pains for months, and then the night before my tour was due to start I keeled over. They found that a kidney stone had lodged near the exit tube of my kidneys. It was recommended I take two or three weeks off, but I was back on stage within two nights.
HAVE YOU GOOGLED A HEALTH CONDITION
I just ring my mum. Also, my girlfriend, Emily, is a medical student and both her father and mother are doctors, so I’m all set if I have any health concerns.
Don’t drink the night before! But seriously, black coffee does work. A good espresso and a Nurofen Plus.
ARE YOU A WORRIER
I’m a positive person on the outside but I’m a real worrier on the inside.
I have a very big fear of heights.
LIKE TO LIVE FOR EVER
Of course! But first of all, I would like my parents, siblings and my kids to have that power before me.
