What’s your earliest memory of London?

My dad was a banker and has his branch on Kensington High Street, where Massimo Dutti is now. I went to his office as a very young child and sat at his desk in the ‘big’ chair. My dad popped out of the room and I saw a red button. Didn’t know what it was so pressed it. Nothing happened and thought nothing of it. Several minutes later as we left the bank through front doors we were greeted by armed police in riot gear who has surrounded the bank. All eyes were on me as they say as I looked round sheepishly!!

What would you do as Mayor of London for the day?

Go for a slap up breakfast lunch and dinner!

Which building in London would you buy?

Somerset House.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given?

When someone makes you an offer, never say no. You may miss an opportunity. Always say yes and then consider your options later.

Which temptation can’t you resist?


What’s on your bucket list?

One day to be able to go up into space and look at earth from up there.
