How would you describe your style?

I think I’m quite a tomboy…but I do like going a bit funky every now and again. Lots of bright colours. My statement piece would be my Doc Martin shoes, I think. I don’t know… I like, kind of following a sort of This is England sort of style – skinhead, scar… and that’s why I like my Docs. But, then… I do also like a bit of the 70s, here and there… the bright colours, the patterns,  the pinks and reds… things like that really.

With a one-way ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Somewhere in the Caribbean! Somewhere like Jamaica or the Bahamas… because they’re cool and it’ll be sunny all the time. You can hang on the beach, enjoy laidback vibes, and the world just moves slower. Its proper chill and you can wear comfy clothes everywhere… no shoes as well.

Dream date?

Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys because I love his all Teddy boy phase, but I also love how in the beginning he was a bit of a road chav as well, which is kind of cute. I just think he’d be a laugh, and he dated Alexa Chung and she’s quite funny. So, yeah…

What do you think about dating apps and modern dating in general?

I mean, a lot of it is online… people chat online, which is a shame, but I guess that is just how the world is now. People are busier so they talk online… umm, it’s always nice to meet people face to face – but it is nerve-racking, so I like to have a drink or two beforehand!

Are we alone in the universe?

Definitely not. We’re just a little speck in the universe.

Does true love exist?

Yeah, I think so. Actually, definitely!

If the world were to end tomorrow, what would humanity be remembered for?

Being both smart, and stupid with technology… then killing ourselves off.
