Have your say

Chantelle Wyatt, 30, is a scuba diving instructor, writer and trainee teacher. She lives in Southsea.

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

I came back from Egypt in November after a summer spent in Indonesia. They were both dive-related trips, one spent working with Operation Wallacea, the environmental research and expeditions organisation, and the other to review more sites for a book I’m writing.

What was the last gig/concert you went to?

I checked out the Southsea Alternative Choir at the King Street Tavern. They were superb.

What about the last theatre show you saw?

House of Burlesque at the Kings Theatre in Southsea. Wonderful night and I try to go every time they come to Portsmouth.

The last book you read?

I recently finished The Silent World by Jacque Cousteau. I have read it a hundred times but am totally in love with it.

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

I was just subjected to the Godfather trilogy, which I am embarrassed to say I had never seen.

What’s your favourite way to relax?

Diving. It’s my favourite thing to do in the world and an activity that completely chills me out.

What do you watch on TV?

Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Luther because I am a little bit in love with Idris Elba.

And which TV programmes do you avoid?

The Great British Bake Off because I just don’t care.

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

David Attenborough, for sure, and Idris Elba, of course.

Where do you eat out?

Southsea. I am a big fan of sushi so Sakura in Albert Road is always a hotspot for me. I love tapas so you can often find me in Nicholson’s, also in Albert Road. Belle Isle too because I am in love with their Alabama hotpot.

What’s your signature dish?

Tuna salad and pitta bread.

Where’s good for a day out locally?

I like Southsea seafront. You can’t go wrong with a wander by the sea, ending in a potter around the boats at the Camber and a pint in the Still and West with chips in paper.

And what about a day trip further afield?

Brighton is always on my list. I went to university there and so I always enjoy a wander around The Lanes.
