1 Who are you?
2 What do you do?
Police Community Support Officer.
3 Why would people know you?
I'm the new PCSO in Whittlesey, but have been about in several areas around the fens.
4 On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) how do your rate your sense
Probably about 4, but people don't usually get any of my jokes.
5 What was your last text message you sent or received?
My sister telling me she was six weeks pregnant.
6 Give us at least five pet hates.
People sniffing, people who talk over you, adverts on radio stations, people who ask for your advice then go and do completely the opposite, queues in shops.
7 Is it time for Britain to abolish the Royal Family?
No, we have to keep them. I love the royal family.
8 Are you looking forward to the smoking ban in pubs and why?
I think people should be able to smoke in pubs, as it's where they go to relax, unwind and socialise. But I do agree with non-smoking restaurants, because it's not pleasant to have a smoky atmosphere when you're eating.
9 What is your favourite item of clothing in your wardrobe, and why?
I love my red and gold sparkly top, because it gets me in the Christmas mood. Sparkles are definitely a girl's best friend.
10 Where is the capital of the Fens and why?
Definitely March, because its so central to get to other places, and has lots to offer.
11 Which TV programme sends you to the off button?
Anything with Ricky Gervais in. He drives me mad.
12 If you had £1,000 to blow what you would do with it?
Shop, shop, shop, for lots of sparkly clothes and shoes.
13 What football result do you look for first and why?
None, I hate football, the only sport I follow is Come Dancing.
14 Name a town or country you would never want to return to, and your reasons.
I would never go back to Tunisia, because every time I have been there I have always been really ill when I got home.
15 Who would you most like to sit next to on an aeroplane and why?
Jo Brand. She is so funny but has a very dry sense of humour. She could tell me jokes and make the flight go quicker.
16 Who would you cross the road to avoid?
Customer survey reps.
17 What is the worst job you have ever had to do?
When I first left school I trained as a dental nurse, and had to look in people's mouths. Some were manky, especially when they had eaten garlic or didn't bother to brush their teeth before they came to the dentist.
18 Who was your childhood hero and why?
Wonderwoman. I always wanted to be like her.
19 If you weren't doing your current job, what else might you have chosen?
Probably still be in the travel industry, but I love my job in the police and couldn't see myself doing anything else now.
20 Your claim to fame.
I danced with Lionel Blair when I was eight. I have met lots of famous people when I worked in London, but Lionel is the one who I remember the most.
21 What's your biggest regret in life?
Not joining the Police Force earlier.
