Lie-in, full English breakfast in bed, catch a bit of Andrew Marr while going through the Sunday papers. Watch some sport – football, tennis, cricket – in the afternoon, then a walk to the pub with friends and family before heading home for dinner.
Best holiday destination:
Seminyak, in Bali – wonderful hotels, great weather, paradisal beaches, friendly people and a sophisticated range of restaurants and other things to do in the evening. Also love Marrakesh – such a vibrant, exciting city.
Kate Bush, Debbie Harry and Agnetha from Abba. Then David Bowie – went through a stage thinking he was a genius from another world. Sports-wise, used to love Swedish tennis player Bjorn Borg.
