What's your mobile phone? I have a silver/grey Sony Ericsson P910i.

What is your signature scent? Gucci Rush is my favourite aftershave - it's woody, and earthy.

What brand of underwear do you favour? Mitch Dowd Astro Boy Australia underwear holds everything in place when I dance.

What sheets are on your bed? I like fresh, crisp, cool, plain white cotton sheets from Calvin Klein.

What car do you drive? I love my bike, a hybrid Matrix Express, which is fast, cheap, easy to park and good exercise.

Favourite Champagne? It has to be vintage Veuve. It tastes great and the bubbles are small.

Brand of coffee? I prefer Illy coffee - it's creamy, not too harsh and comes in a cool re-useable tin.

Which magazines are always on your coffee table? Attitude, Elle Decoration and Living Etc - they're always borrowing stuff from the interior design store I have with my partner Lloyd for photo shoots of what's cool in London.

Stereo or iPod? I've got an iPod, of course. I'm all Mac'd up!

What brands are in your wash bag? I love Clarins. After a big night out, a little Clinique All About Eyes reduces those dark circles.

What is your favourite piece of furniture? I have two matching leather sofas in my living room. Dido bought one just the same - she has great taste.

Favourite bag? I love my sporty but classic brown leather Picard satchel.

What is your oldest possession? I got my teddy bear when I was two. He's now 38 and still in good nick.

Most dog-eared book? I'm constantly going back to Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking for inspiration.

What item do you wish you had never bought? I've got a set of body fat monitoring scales. The readings can sometimes be a shock.

What is your favourite labour-saving device? It has to be my Screwpull - a mechanical levered wine bottle opener.
