Q Tell us about your childhood

A I had a very happy, bookish childhood. I grew up with my parents and my brother Jamie in Holywood, Co Down.

I was never a star of the sports field, so music was really my passion at school. I sang in choirs, I played the flute in orchestras and bands, and I was also very lucky to travel.
