Xpose's Lisa Cannon gets to interview A-list celebrities all over the world but she says that meeting Brad Pitt was the highlight of her year.

"Meeting Brad Pitt at long last was my highlight. It's funny because I had been waiting 20 years and he didn't disappoint," she said.

Her 101-year-old grandmother even helped her nab some time with the Hollywood heartthrob.

"My grandmother actually had a helping hand in it," she revealed.

"I was supposed to meet him in the morning but the plane was delayed and the interview was gone.

"She cheered me up and suggested approaching him on a red carpet to ask him if Fury was a good depiction of the war for women like her who had lived through two world wars and was still alive.

"In the end, his personal assistant told him and he came right over to me and talked for 10 minutes. Unbelievable," she added.

Lisa's grandmother is very special to her and she heads to London with her dad every year to spend Christmas with her.

They have previously celebrated the festive season at Claridge's in Mayfair and The Dorchester - hotels they know her grandmother would like.

"We want to take her somewhere elegant and nice," Lisa said.

While Lisa says she loves the experience of going away for Christmas, there is another reason she like to celebrate in a nice hotel.

"I just wouldn't have an interest in cooking Christmas dinner, not for two people. It would be different if you were cooking for loads of people and kids, that would be fun.

"I did it before and there was no joy in it," she admitted.
