Have your say

Jenna Hiscock, 30, is a fitness instructor and principal of Jenna’s Dance. She runs Zumba and modern dance classes in the A&J Studio in Cosham.

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

We went to Gran Canaria in August. We usually go to Menorca where we find it quite quiet, but we thought we wanted a change this year. When we arrived there was a massive festival, it was so busy. It certainly lived up to expectations.

What was the last gig/concert you went to?

Paul Weller in London. It was such a a big theatre and really busy but not too crammed. It was brilliant.

Just before that I saw Michael Bublé at the O2 in London. It was awesome, he was really entertaining. He

came out in the crowd and sang to a little girl on stage. We’re going to see Foo Fighters next year.

What was the last theatre show you saw?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London. It was for our 12th wedding anniversary. It was out of this world. I was really blown away by the cast and set.

And the last book you read?

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s quite deep and emotional. My mum tried to get me into the Harry Potter books by J K Rowling. She had all the books and films but I couldn’t get past the first book. If it’s too long I lose interest.

What was the last film you saw?

Taken starring Liam Neeson. Normally, with children it can be a wide range from Frozen to Transformers. After we watched the film we watched Family Guy and it was a spoof of the film Taken. It was such a weird coincidence.

What’s your favourite way to relax?

My only way to relax is when I’m teaching. I can really be myself. The kids and ladies that I teach are so determined, loyal and supportive. After the classes I get in my car and just sigh with a calm relief. If you find something that you really enjoy it’s the best way to relax.

Where do you eat out?

Red Lounge in Cowplain. It’s right on our doorstep. It’s closed now but a favourite was Chiquitos in Port Solent. It holds so many good memories for me and my family, especially my mum. I have such a strong connection to it, now it’s not there

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

I don’t cook often but my favourite dish is sausage and mash. I also try to cook toad in the hole, but I can never get the Yorkshire pudding right. My mum’s were the best, she was never happy with them but they were great.
