Have your say

Former Take Me Out contestant and learning support assistant, Grace Levy, 23, from Titchfield now lives in London and is entering Miss Greater London 2013 and hoping to win Miss England.

When did you last go away and where did you go?

Corfu with my boyfriend back in October. We went to a remote five-star all inclusive and it was lovely!

What was the last gig/concert/comedy show you went to?

A Frank Sinatra impersonator at the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square in London. It was like being transported back in time and the piano player played for Judy Garland on the exact same night 47 years ago.

What about the last theatre show you saw?

Billy Elliot. It’s been out for a while now but every time I go they have had technical difficulties and cancel the show after half an hour. I finally got to see it all last month and loved it.

The last book you read?

A Long Way Gone : The True Story of a Child Soldier by Ishmael Beah. It’s a shocking book about this young man’s childhood in Sierra Leone in the early 1990s. It makes you realise how lucky we are to live in a safe and war-free country, and that fighting and gun crime are not cool things to be rapped about.

The last film you saw at the cinema or on DVD?

I saw The Hobbit just after Christmas and was a bit disappointed. I grew up reading the book, so know the story inside out. I was annoyed that it’s been embellished so much that it’s in three parts rather than one good juicy film! I’m a big fan of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films and this one didn’t quite match up.

What’s your favourite way to relax?

Listening to a good album with a nice hot cup of tea.

What do you watch on TV?

I love reminiscing about the 1990s with The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (pictured below). And watching repeats of The Inbetweeners – it’s so funny.

And which TV programmes do you avoid?

Anything along the lines of Made in Chelsea and Geordie Shore. I can’t stand those reality-style programme. They seem so pointless to me.

Which celeb would you most like to spend a weekend with?

Michael Jackson (pictured right). I’d go to one of his concerts and then have an adventure at Neverland.

Where do you shop?

High street stores, especially Zara, River Island and New Look. They are not too expensive and you can piece together some classic and classy outfits.

Where do you eat out?

Villa Romana in Fareham. The food is out of this world and the hospitality always fantastic.

What’s your signature dish, if you’re cooking?

Mushroom risotto. It’s so good because I make it from scratch... no cheating with sauces or microwave rice.

Where’s good for a day out locally?

The New Forest. I love the fresh air and the animals. It’s a good day whatever time of year as there is always a walk you haven’t walked and a pub you haven’t been in.
