Who would you love to have dinner with and where?

‘It’s still Oprah Winfrey. I love Oprah Winfrey.  It’s tragic. I was looking up her birthday this morning.

‘I have a lot of respect for her and I would love to have a meal with her one day. It would just be amazing. She inspired me a lot when I was young.

‘It would be amazing to go to her house or to have her at my house. I think your home is just such a special place to be.’

Last meal on the planet?

‘I just love chocolate, and I know that I shouldn’t love chocolate so much, so shouldn’t want to eat it so much. I would just love to have no dinner but just dessert and just have every kind of chocolate dish you could have – chocolate mousse, chocolate brownies, chocolate cake, chocolate Lindt balls… just chocolate.’
