When I first moved to London I was 20, and I stayed in a flat overlooking the river on the Isle of Dogs with a group of co- workers from Live TV, my first television job.
Then, when I got the job presenting on Blue Peter, I moved to west London, and stayed in the "BBC hostel" for a while. It was a bit crazy -you'd bump in to the Afghanistan correspondent over toast in the morning - but it was fairly cheap and, until I found my own place, it was a handy stopover.
I discovered Chiswick when I went to a party one night at Ant and Dec's house. It seemed like a really nice place to live, so when I heard one of the buildings nearby was up for sale, I jumped at it.
The only thing I don't like about this house is that it doesn't have that much character. But for the three years I have been here, it has been really handy - it's a three-bedroom converted mews house only moments from the river.
As a modern house, it might not be so aesthetically interesting, but less things tend to go wrong, and for me, as I am always moving around and I don't have children, it's a perfect base.
I am a big telly-watcher - I've got TVs in most rooms and have every single satellite, Freeview and digital channel there is. I'm also a bit of a radio buff - I have six digital radios dotted around the house.
When I first moved in, I bought this outdoor hot tub. It was a totally mad investment: somehow, I imagined my life was going to be some kind of crap version of Boogie Nights, and in some ways it has been. But it was really just a rather terrible minor-celebrity affectation. It has been great making jokes jingles on the radio about it, but I have only actually used it once properly, and it is far too high-maintenance, as you have to change the water every three months. I don't think I shall take it with me when I move on.
I love film posters: The Apartment is one of my favourite films and I have a huge poster of it that I got shipped over from the States a few years ago. It's framed above the stairs. I also have a poster of Death of a Salesman, my favourite play, and a signed framed poster of The Lemonheads in the sitting room. They're my girlfriend's favourite band, and when they came in to play a set on XFM, I got them to sign it for her.
I adore the sleek lines of Philippe Starck's designs, and have a lamp by him, and a white swivel chair in my bedroom. I could feel at home at any of the Schrager hotels that he has worked on, especially the Mondrian in LA, which is beautiful.
