What is your daily beauty routine?

I use Tisserand All-Over Skin Wash, then I moisturise with La Prairie Cellular Platinum Rare, which has a subtle shimmer. Occasionally I exfoliate with By Terry Grain de Rose, and if my skin is not in great condition, I apply By Terry Skin-Expert Detox & Rescue.

Your make-up bag staples?

Mac Splashproof Lash mascara, eyelash curlers and Lancôme Tropiques Minérale Bronzer.

What’s your view on plastic surgery?

As long as it’s subtle and it helps someone with their confidence, I don’t have a problem with it.

Your desert-island beauty essential?

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is amazing.

What makes you feel glamorous? 

Having smooth, moisturised legs is a must. I use Veet Suprem’ Essence In-shower Hair Removal Cream.

What is your favourite high-street shop?

Definitely Topshop. It’s great for on-trend stuff, and you don’t have to spend a fortune.

Do you have a signature scent?

At the moment I’m using Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle Twist and Spray.

Your best-ever beauty treatment? 

The hot-stone massage at the Grove in Hertfordshire [] is really fabulous.

Who is on your beauty speed dial?

Sam at Adee Phelan in London’s Covent Garden [] looks after my hair. I’m growing it out at the moment, so I have a few extensions.

Your tip for body confidence?

Body-brushing before you get in the shower helps get rid of cellulite, although it’s not a magic fix. I still have a bit, as I think all girls do.

What would we find in your fridge?

Water, cheese, ham, veggies. I’m very specific about where everything goes, so if Tom puts something in the wrong place he hears about it!

Are there any foods you avoid?

I try to cut back on carbs. Bread is the enemy!

Guilty pleasure?

Spaghetti bolognese with butter on the pasta and loads of parmesan cheese on top. 

Do you take supplements? 

Loads. Cod liver oil, a few kelp tablets before I eat – they help break down dairy and carbs – vitamin A and glucosamine.

Your feel-good philosophy? 

Try to relax and be happy.

If you could change anything about your body, what would it be?

I’d love a perkier bum!

How do you stay in shape?

I do pilates, which is great for toning, and I walk the dog a lot.

How much sleep do you get?

I always make time for a good eight hours.

‘Great escapes? Thailand is my favourite place for exploring off the beaten track. Mauritius is perfect for relaxation

‘Marilyn Monroe is my beauty icon. But I like to take inspiration from lots of different people’

‘My designers of choice are Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen (pictured)’

‘This Georges Chakra gown is one of my favourite dresses – I wore it to the St Trinian’s 2 premiere’
