1. I once pitched an access documentary following Simon Cowell (before he was famous) launching a new girl band. ITV turned it down! Oh, and the band flopped!

2. I went to primary school with Prince Charles. (Sadly not the royal one, but I often wonder how life panned out for him saddled with that name).

3. I’m a sucker for good American drama. My secret guilty pleasure is hot dates with Sky Plus. In Treatment, House, 30 Rock, Californication, Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives and The Wire – I’m hooked on ‘em all!
