What has been your favourite year so far and why?

1997 when our first book was published

1989 when my grandmother, my uncle and my father died

Favourite book?

This was the toughest question to answer (a real Sophie’s Choice). It tends to be last book I read (A Year of Marvellous Ways was fab). But then I found The Four Agreements (Ancient Toltec wisdom) really helpful . I love The Hobbit and thoroughly enjoyed The Glass Room (Simon Mayer). Help!!!

Favourite film?

A Beautiful Mind

What’s your guilty pleasure?

The occasional afternoon power nap

If you were Prime Minister what would be top of your agenda?

Invest in ways to get people active, ads are not enough, we need stronger incentives and the fitness industry needs a boost.

A single piece of advice to the next generation of women?

I have a rule that has worked for me with regard to my diet, my exercise and my work : ‘Do first what you should and then what you would.’

Favourite piece of Asquith clothing?

Anything in Satsuma orange!

What is it about Asquith that you love?

Once you put the clothes on you can forget about them. You know they will look good whatever you are doing… in my case often rolling around the floor and going upside down.

Who would you most like to see wearing Asquith?

Kate Middleton

What do you love most about Pilates?

How it makes me feel after a class!

Who is your Wow Woman?

Elizabeth 1st (all our best monarchs were/are women)
