Interview for This is Nottingham.co.uk
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
I jump in the shower.
When did you last give to charity?
I gave to some children in relation to Manchester United's Childrens fund. I gave £11,000.
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
I wrapped my Christmas presents, it was stressful but it's over now.
What have you done lately that you're ashamed of?
I've had too many late night binges.
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
It's got to be Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough ice-cream.
What's your earliest memory?
I remember having races in the front garden with my sister. The garden seemed huge at the time as I was so small but it's actually quite small.
Who or what makes you angry?
My tour manager, I've spent three years with him without a break!
What's the most you've ever spent on one thing?
I got a watch for £25,000. That's definitely the most expensive thing.
Whose career do you envy?
For longevity it's got to be George Michael or Elton John.
What's the worst film you've ever seen?
Open Water with the divers. It was pointless with an anti-climax.
And the best book you've ever read?
I love the Goosebumps books -- they are the kids horror books but they are great!
Which song can make you cry?
None really make me cry. There are some that remind me of my family.
You can pass one law -- what would it be?
We need to toughen up the country!
What would you like on your headstone?
My family is my life and my life is my family.
Who was your favourite X Factor contestant?
I liked them all. Leon's got a bit of Sinatra about him and Rhydian's quite different. I thought Rhydian would win it.
