Did you study all types of dance?
I did – from jazz and ballet to tap, which I love. I did 42nd Street and that was probably my favourite. I also love salsa and samba.
How important is fitness to you?
At the moment for me, it’s just about being happy. My [late] brother always taught me to be fit. He was a massive advocate of fitness and whenever I would go and stay with him in Ireland, he’d wake me up and we’d go to the gym together and then go and get breakfast together after that. It was a great way to start the day and we had a great time together as well.
What comprises a typical workout?
At the moment, I run whenever I feel like running. I especially like to run along the beach.
It clears my head – and I also like dancing around the house!
Which cast members do you exercise with?
My husband [James Stewart, who plays Justin] and sometimes Tim Franklin and Sophie Dillman. It’s always fun.
