*Throwing a party? Send your guests home with hangover goodie bags including paracetamol, crisps, fizzy pop, a face pack and an eye mask. Bleurgh!
*Make water more interesting by pouring it into a water pistol, then firing the refreshment into your mouth. Ahh!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
“I wanted to be a bin man but they didn’t take on girls at the time. I was gutted!”Joanne, via Facebook
“An astronaut so I could float with the stars” Carla, via Twitter
“A bride. But I now model at wedding fairs, so I get to be a bride all the time.” Vanessa, via Facebook
“A ventriloquist. I was never able to enunciate words without moving my lips though.” Kirstie, via Facebook
So Kerry, you have a new book out. Fess up, did you write it?
No, a ghostwriter did, silly! I’m dyslexic so it makes more sense to get some help with writing.
Did you write your other book?
Of course not. It is actually far better to have a ghostwriter – it is very therapeutic talking about your life…
What’s the book about?
All my mistakes. I’m not proud of some of the stuff in there but I’ve been off cocaine for three years, and I’m getting my life together. You know, when you look at how Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston ended up, I’d have put money on the fact that I’d be the first one to go…
Have you given up on love?
No, of course not. I did marry Brian McFadden when I was very young and Mark Croft was just a rebound…
Have you been dating recently?
Yes, but no one special. I’ve done internet dating but nothing has come of it.
And how are the kids?
I love them to bits but they do drive me mad. I’ve threatened to put them on eBay more than a few times – buy one, get three free!
Poor kids! Have you got plans to do any more singing?
I’m always singing around the house. Give me some Roy Orbison or Elvis Presley and the kids and me will be off. I am in a new ITV show – I can’t say too much about it but it’s called The Big Reunion…

The moment when… you fall asleep in yoga
This is the one chance a week you get to enjoy complete peace and quiet. Bliss. And as you lie in the Shavasana pose you find the instructor’s voice so calm and soothing. Breathe in and out. Inhale. Exhale. Everything is peaceful and silent and… Zzzz. Next thing you know you open your eyes and everyone is staring at you. They’re all waiting for you to come out of position so the class can finish. And if that wasn’t bad enough, you’ve dribbled and left a wet patch on the yoga mat.
Date for your diary…
Thought festivals were just for summer? You thought wrong. The XFM Winter Wonderland is in its ninth year, and while the London date with Editors is sold out, you can still see Bloc Party (right), Maximo Park and Spector at the O2 Apollo, Manchester. OK, you won’t be in a field wearing hot pants, but it’s the tunes that count.
December 4, Xfm.co.uk.
Is it just us or…
Do you really hate it when people obviously skinnier than you complain about how fat they feel?
This week we want to be…
We’ve all seen her killer instinct (spearing squirrels and braving the wilderness isn’t for us), but to show her softer side the 22-year-old actress is following in the footsteps of Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron by becoming the new face of Christian Dior. Yep, this lovely lady will front the 2013 Miss Dior handbag campaign from March.And if an acting and modelling career wasn’t enough, she’s also got X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult, 22, for a boyfriend. Who knew that the awkward kid with a bad haircut in About A Boy would grow into such a handsome fella? Not us.
But Hoult isn’t the only good-looking man in her life. She stars opposite Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in new film Silver Linings Playbook. Oh, and let’s not forget Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson who fought for her love in The Hunger Games.
If there was a race to be the hottest girl in Hollywood, she’d be winning it. So Jennifer, what do you think – can we be you? Please?
