I look back at pictures of myself at awards dinners when I was younger and I was wearing black trousers and a top and I think why did I wear that to an awards night? I partly blame my mum!

River Island.

Tell us who your favourite designer is even if youre only able to admire their clothes on the super-rich
I love Ted Baker.

Most recent purchase youre
thrilled with.
A black Ted Baker dress. Its such a good quality classic, it fits me well and, even better - it was in the sale online. I love finding the best deals online, using my reliable Plusnet broadband connection!

Who do you regard as the most stylish man and woman of the last 100 years?
Cheryl Cole always looks amazing. Man, not sure, maybe Brad Pitt?

What perfume do you wear?
I have to make sure I have a light scent thats only for training because otherwise Ill always be reminded of training. At the moment, my gym scent is Davidoff Cool Water and outside the gym its Issey Miyake and Hugo Deep Red.

Which hair and beauty products are in your bathroom?
Lots of makeup - all different brands. I tend to ask my friends for their recommendations on new products. I use LOreal hair care stuff and lots of hairspray - I dont actually like the stuff, but I have to use it when Im competing.

Which beauty product would you be lost without?
Definitely moisturiser - face and body. Couldnt live without it!

Tell us about the last occasion you stepped out feeling utterly gorgeous (what you wore, why you glowed)
At the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards in December. I wore an Anoushka G dress that I loved and I had my hair and make up done professionally. I felt great.

Are you a gym body?
I guess you could say that!

Whats your favourite salon beauty treatment?
Full body massage.

Do you have a beauty tip you
swear by?

Always take your make up off before going to bed.

Favourite holiday destination
I went to Marmaris in Turkey last year and would definitely recommend it.

Secrets and Home Truths, by Freya North.
