KIERAN HOWARD: The royal tot may well get a new nursery playmate...

Have your say

Seventeen-year-old Jerry Williams from Milton plays the Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea, tonight in Road to Blissfields, a competition to find new talent to play at the Winchester festival.

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

In July to Pollence, Majorca, with all my family. We hired a private villa with a pool and it was lovely.

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

Jake Bugg in the Wedgewood Rooms in November . He was absolutely amazing and so was his support, Tom Odell.

What about the last theatre show you saw?

Wicked. I saw it in London with my mum, dad and brother. It was one of the best shows I’ve seen.

The last book you read?

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It was really sad but it was an interesting story.

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

Les Miserables. I didn’t really fancy it to begin with. I only really went because some parts were filmed in Portsmouth. But in the end I thought it was a really enjoyable and interesting musical.

What’s your favourite way to relax?

Playing on my guitar and writing songs.

What do you watch on TV?

I love comedy shows like Mock the Week or Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Gavin and Stacey is one of my favourite shows. It makes me laugh every time. I also like one-off drama series like Mayday and Leaving.

And which TV programmes do you avoid?

Soap operas. They’re just doom and gloom.

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

Singer-songwriter Jake Bugg because he seems cool to be with and is really hot.

Where do you shop?

All over the place, from eBay to Topshop.

Where do you eat out?

I love curry so places like Bombay Bay at Southsea Marina. The chicken tikka masala there is one of the best I’ve ever tasted. The view is beautiful too, looking over the marina. It’s a really lovely place to go for a treat.

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

Homemade pasta sauce. It’s a Pampered Chef recipe. It’s made with tomatoes, spinach, cream, strong cheese, garlic, chilli and fresh ravioli. Delicious and easy to make.

What about pubs and bars? Where do you go?

The Garage Lounge. I can’t drink at pubs yet because I’m only 17.

Where’s good for a day out locally?

I love going to the beach, whether it’s summer or winter. I just love being down there for a walk or a bike ride. I’m so lucky to live by the sea. It makes me feel at home. I’m always asking mum or dad if we can go for a drive along the seafront. It’s so relaxing, especially late at night, and I can sit in the car listening to my iPod in my pyjamas and dressing gown looking at the seafront lights and the Isle Of Wight.
