I was given this globe for my tenth birthday. At the time, I thought it was incredibly boring, but I gradually became fascinated by the world. So much of my interest in travel came from it – I’ve now been to more than 50 countries.
Marty was my first car when I was 17. I named her after my favourite Pink Lady in the film Grease. My friends and I used to drive her down the King’s Road in London wearing sunglasses and squirting pink water pistols. When I’m feeling sad, I go for a drive.
My husband Jon decorated our three-year-old daughter Joy’s bedroom as a surprise while I was away filming. This original Victorian chest was an unbelievably lucky find, as penguins are Joy’s special animal.
Jon, who’s a cameraman, found this antique circus sign in a reclamation yard when he was filming an upcycling programme. It had our daughter’s name on it, so he couldn’t resist!
This framed photo from our wedding day is so special. It was taken in the room where we stayed at Great Fosters in Surrey, which is believed to have once been a royal residence for King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.
I spotted this copper ‘A’ while browsing round an amazing antique furniture place called Louisa Grace Interiors, near my home in Surrey. I had to have it for my one-year-old son Albion’s bedroom.
I bought these 1930s Arts and Crafts tiles before I even had a fireplace. They represented the home I wanted. It took me two years to source a beautiful cast-iron period fireplace and an in-keeping fire surround, made from reclaimed wood, to go with them.
This clock was made by Jon’s late grandfather and given to us by his mother. As we put it in the car, we wiped off the dust to reveal a handwritten message that no one had seen before, describing how he made it.
