Can you describe your state of mind while presenting a TV programme?
During the programme, I’ll be very happy living the actual moment! All thoughts vanish and it actually brings me to the here and now frame of mind!
What is it that you cannot live without?
Definitely those persons close to my heart i.e. my partner and our close families.
What’s a hobby you spend money on?
Travelling around the world!
What do you think is your best asset, and why?
Forgiving! It made me who I am today! To let go and move on is an asset for sure!
What was your biggest failure to date?
I can’t put pen to paper a particular failure, but I love this quote. In Woody Allen’s words: “If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative.”
On what have you spent the most money in one go?
