Where’s the most memorable place you’ve enjoyed a Glass of Bubbly?
Many many years ago on my 30th birthday. I hired out a bar near Waterloo, had a DJ, a photobooth, had tonnes of helium balloon and birthday cake. All my friends and family were there and they cracked open bottles of bubbly when I blew out the candles. Sharing that moment with all the people I love most in the world was wonderful.
What does Champagne mean to you?

D&B – Enjoying great company, because that’s always a cause for celebration!
What is your favourite food to eat with a Glass of Bubbly?
Every year Mary and Jeffrey Archer throw a ‘Champagne and shepherd’s pie’ Christmas Party at their home and I’ve been the last couple of years with my friend Andrew. I never thought shepherd’s pie would be such a great accompaniment – but my gosh, it’s divine.
