1 Who or what do you find funny?

Have I Got News For You, Absolutely Fabulous and – this is sad – Dad’s Army.

2 What’s your favourite scent and why?

I love the smell of the sea. When I was young nearly every Sunday in the summer, rain or shine, my parents used to pack a picnic and we would go to the seaside in East Lothian. They were happy days.

3 If you could change any one thing about your life to date, what would it be and why?

My height. Because I’m 4ft 11 and if I was 5ft 10 and the same weight I’d be slim!

4 What good piece of advice would you share with your younger self?

Don’t worry about things you can’t change.

5 How would you spend your perfect Saturday?

At a cottage on Loch Awe, leisurely breakfast and walk in the beautiful countryside, and then to Oban to my favourite fish restaurant for dinner.

6 Who was your teenage crush?

Sean Connery.

7 According to your nearest and dearest, what are your best and worst personality traits?

Best - perseverance and worst - obstinacy – two sides of the same coin?

8 Which event in your 2012 diary are you most looking forward to?

The Strictly Fairtrade event at Linlithgow Academy on March 2.

9 Where was your best ever holiday?

A road trip from Canada to Las Vegas and back in a motorhome with friends from college days.

10 Who would get your last Rolo?

My daughter Clare.
