'I was on Malaysian Airlines... they ran out of drink'
The books on my bedside table are... "'Stag's Leap' by Sharon Olds, 'Effi Briest' by Theodor Fontane and 'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Bronte because we are doing it at Christmas."
The best gift I received recently was... "from my son-in-law. It was the Bose Soundlink. It's amazing. I'm obsessed with Diana Krall singing 'You Go To My Head'."
The worst travel experience I've ever had was... "going to Australia with film producer Alan Moloney. We ended up on Malaysian Airlines. There was frost on the wing and they ran out of drink. It was more than 50 hours door-to-door."
The financial advice I gave my kids was... "I'm trying to get them to buy houses at the moment, but they won't listen to me."
My favourite quote is... "from my father, which I have passed on to my own children. He said: 'Roses won't grow around your door unless you plant them'."
