Richmond, London. You get the best of both the city and countryside. Being a history obsessive I love living near Virgina Woolf’s press and Elizabeth 1st’s palace.
What was the last play you saw?
Jumpy, starring Tamsin Greig at the Duke Of York’s theatre. A truly brilliant production. One of the funniest plays I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing.
What’s the last book you read?
I’m currently ripping through the third Game Of Thrones, but may have to take a break to read Caitlin Moran’s Moranthology. The woman’s a genius.
What advice would you give a tourist?
Walk walk walk. Borough and Portabello markets are a must.
Which shops do you rely on?
Coco Fennell online and Jervoise for Asos.com for great vintage inspired pieces.
What’s the best meal you’ve had in London?
Every meal at the Petersham Nurseries is sublime. The food is absolutely delicious and you can’t eat anything like it anywhere else. The setting, just off the Thames, is stunning.
What are your earliest London memories?
Going to the Royal Opera House to watch Swan Lake at Christmas with my grandmother.
What would you do as Mayor for the day?
Reduce the extortionate tube prices and make sure interns get paid.
What were the last albums you bought?
The Princess by Parov Stelar. A dance album that samples 1920s music. Absolutely addictive.
What are you up to at the moment?
I’m just about to start work as a producer’s assistant of a new film by Steven Frears, director of Dangerous liaisons and High Fidelty.
What’s the most romantic place in London?
A bench on the Southbank. At night Big Ben and the London Eye are lit up and you can just watch the world go by.
What’s the best place for a night out with friends?
Anywhere we can all be together and have a dance to songs we can all sing along to. The Box is always a blast. You’re never in bed till 7am.
The Experimental Cocktail Club in Chinatown.
