What has been your personal highlight of 2020?
One of the greatest things about 2020 was that the weather has finally been toppled from the top spot of favourite British conversation starters.
Which three celebrities would you invite to a Zoom party?
I would invite David Icke, Katie Hopkins and Piers Morgan - I would put myself on mute, sit back and enjoy the show.
What has been your guiltiest lockdown pleasure?
This is a childhood-inspired online version of Knockdown Ginger where you invite random people to a Teams/Zoom call, wait till they join and then leave.
Which tech figurehead has inspired you most this year, and why?
I really like Elon Musk. His can do/get it done attitude is incredible. To get astronauts launched into space is such an amazing and complex undertaking. You know, it's not rocket science but it is quite difficult.
What piece of technology, or app, have you not been able to do without during the pandemic?
The BBC Good Food app - my baking has flourished over the last six months!
If you could be anyone else for a week, who would you be and what would you do?
I'd probably be Gloria Gaynor. What would I do? Do you think I'd crumble? Do you think I'd lay down and die? Oh no. Not I. I will survive.
Do you miss face-to-face events?
Yes! I look forward to their return. Of course at first I'll be afraid. I'll be petrified. I'll keep thinking how others could be within two metres of my side.
How will COVID leave its mark on the way the channel operates long term?
I think it will be a long time before the cross-channel ferries start operating at levels anywhere near what we were used to before.
