Confession box with... Lisa Fitzpatrick

From old nicknames to embarrassing fashion moments, fashion stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick spills the beans.

What is your nickname?

I was in a nightclub with my husband Paul and Tony Fenton many years ago. I had an argument and went stomping down the road, and Tony called me 'Stomper' and he used to write Christmas cards 'To Paul and Stomper'.

Your most embarrassing fashion moment?

I've had many. Probably, looking back, on how I used to dress over the top with bling. I had disco balls in my ears, back-combed hair… Everything was bling.

What childhood memory makes you cringe?

Probably my first kiss when I wasn't sure what I was supposed to be doing or if I was doing it right at all.

What's your most annoying habit?

If somebody makes themselves a cup a tea, I will fill up the kettle straight away. I would never make a cup of tea without filling it for the next one.

What would you tell your 16-year-old self?

You could do anything you want to do.
