confession box

What is your nickname?

It's Dolly but not after Dolly Parton and certainly not after the sheep! It's a twist on Daly and certain friends still use it. Also, Mark Cagney calls me Daisy.

What uncool song do secretly you love?

I sing along to most cringey radio stuff, especially in the car when there's no one else there to be tortured. From Cliff Richard to One Direction, I love it all.

What childhood memory makes you cringe?

Asking my friends if they wanted a cup of tea when I didn't know how to make one. That's pretty embarrassing - I'm morto for myself!

Who is your inappropriate crush?

It's Bob Geldof. His scruffiness doesn't matter because his words are so eloquent and his actions are so powerful. He's an amazing man with a fantastic mind and a beautiful nature. You either have that cool or you don't.

What's your most annoying habit?

My worst habit is being a slow eater. My family always get great entertainment out of how long it takes me to eat. I chat too much.
