If I’m on TV, I make a real effort to get ready. When I go out, I want to relax a bit more. It’s a quick shower, a bit of moisturiser and I’m done in 15 minutes. I host a beauty awards every year, and one of the main reasons I do it is the goody bag: I’ve never seen anything that makes my sister quite so happy.
I was introduced to the Murad range through it. I recommend their mattifying moisturiser to all my girlfriends. At first, they take the mickey, but then they use it and say, “Oh my god, this is amazing.”
Back in the day, my friends and I would go out to buy a shirt for a Saturday night, whereas now it is a case of looking in the wardrobe to see what’s there. I take most time over my shoes, because I’m not very good at putting things together. I recently asked a stylist to go through my wardrobe for work and she was like, “No, no, do you have anything to go with this? No?” It was awkward. She went to buy more clothes.
I love a good suit. I don’t often get to wear one, but if I have a presenting gig, I make sure everything is crisp. Most of the money I spend on clothes probably goes on Thom Sweeney suits: he does a lot for Dermot O’Leary, David Gandy and Jamie Redknapp, and I’ve never seen those boys look bad in a suit.
I don’t know why, but I often find myself in darker colours. Last Saturday, I went out with two mates and we were all wearing black and I was like, “Boys, seriously, somebody needs to change. We look like a past-it boy band.”
