“I’ve been in this studio mansion flat for about 12 years. When I bought it I had to really downsize so everything in this flat is essential, either for nostalgic reasons or practicality. So I stream everything on my laptop and I watch TV in bed but I’m seldom in. I eat out, I never cook. It’s like New York or Paris, I live in the street.
The building was originally service flats for the Harley Street doctors. It’s a great building, very Deco. I love looking down the stairwell, it’s like pure Poirot. When I moved here it was full of old Marylebone people but it’s changed a bit now.
My favourite thing about the flat is the location, I can walk everywhere. When I bought it I was working on the overnight show at BBC London, which was based on Marylebone High Street at the time. It was great because I could walk there and back in my pyjamas practically. I still have to go and see all the shows for work, which I love – last night I was at Cats and I just walked back.
Now I present the afternoon show. In the new year we’re getting an extra hour 1-4 pm, which is really exciting. I’m also doing the raffle at Curtain Up Christmas market. It’s such a lovely event, like an Alan Bennett film.
Jo and Matilda will be drawing the raffle at the Curtain Up Christmas Market on Sunday, December 6 in Kensington. Entry £1.50, all proceeds go to the charity Back Up – transforming lives after spinal cord injury curtainupevents.co.uk
