* Favourite restaurant in London?
I would say Veeraswamy, Swallow Street, W1.
I've only been there once but it was amazing.
I had a coconut fish curry. I'm mainly vegetarian but sometimes eat fish.
* What's your comfort food?
* What would you cook to seduce someone?
I do a really nice roast aubergine in balsamic vinegar, honey, sesame seeds and oil, with asparagus and sun-dried tomatoes.
* Favourite bar?
I haven't been for so long. I tend to go straight from a restaurant to a nightclub and avoid bars.
* Favourite drink?
* Favourite nightclub and why?
That depends on where the posse wants to go.
Personally, Nag Nag Nag and Drama are my favourites at the moment. I DJ sometimes at private parties but never play dance music. It's just old-school stuff like reggae, Bowie, the Stones, the Clash, the Cure. The funk and old R&B usually comes from Roberta Flack and Stevie Wonder. Then I'll fling in a Missy Elliott and mix it up with a bit of Nirvana.
* Best party?
David Furnish's party in Venice. It was quite a select crowd and a really nice bunch of people. Amazing flowers and decoration, a good buzz, incredible.
* What happened?
Lots of memorable things happened - but none I'd put in print, thank you.
* Perfect night out?
All the girls come round to get ready, I put some great tunes on and we open the wine. We all do our makeup and get dressed up all glam, go and have a massive meal somewhere, then press on to Drama or Nag Nag Nag. We tend to end up partying till dawn.
* What are your virtues?
I couldn't say but people say I'm very kind, generous and loyal.
* What are your vices?
It's all or nothing, I'm afraid. I can be a little bit extreme in my partying.
* Most annoying …
