What school did you attend? Tynecastle High School.

I loved my time at school but I believe the best is yet to come.

What was your first job?

I spent two weeks over the summer in my mum’s chemist shop screwing child caps on medicine bottles.

What has been your most unusual job?

I once dressed up in gingham and flew off on a plastic moon.

My biggest achievement so far has been... playing the role of Meatloaf in the UK tour of We Will Rock You - I’ve loved every moment.

My worst moment ever was... when I got altitude sickness and hypothermia climbing Kilimanjaro.

Three words that sum up my personality are: Curious. Caring. Honest.

Three places in Edinburgh I could not live without are: Waverley Station. Calton Hill. Armstrong’s.

Who is your best friend? My mum.

Which TV show do you never miss? I never watch consistent TV, but every time I turn the TV on, Location, Location, Location is on.

If you could bring one show to Edinburgh what would it be? Avenue Q.

Name one item you not live without... My boyfriend, Lewis :)

By what ethos do you live your life? What’s fur ye will no go by ye!
