Most embarrassing moment at work?
Wearing my name badge on the street after a work event – everyone kept on saying ‘Hello Claire’ as I walked past. It wasn’t until I saw myself in the mirror that I realized I wasn’t actually famous!
If you could live anywhere in the world other than the UK where would it be?
Miami, it’s got beaches, it’s got shops, and it’s got good food. And it’s hot pretty much all year round. (And I’m not scared of hurricanes)
Describe the best night of your life?
I once did a private show for music industry professionals at the Royal Albert Hall, in the Elgar Room. The piano that was on stage was Elton John’s red piano, Tom McClane, Shania Twain’s guitarist was on stage, as was Mick Jones from The Clash! It was a just cool night, good people in the room, and an amazing band.
- Film – Titanic, can’t lie, it just is.
- TV Show – Nashville!
- Band – The Beatles, I’ve never come across another band where you can listen to every song they’ve released and they’re all amazing.
If you could splurge on one item, what would it be?
Patek Phillipe Calatrava, black leather strap, they’re just so elegant, they are the most beautiful watches ever.
