My health: Suzanne McCabe

Model (28)

DO YOU GO TO THE GYM OR CLASSES?

Neither. There is a gym in the house so I really have no excuse . . . The plan is to start using it

DO YOU TAKE VITAMINS OR SUPPLEMENTS?

I take multivitamins and cod liver oil, or echinacea and vitamin C if I'm feeling run down.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN HOSPITAL?

Yes, I had the misfortune of having two pneumothorax (collapsed lung) in 2008 during which I had to make a few rushed trips into casualty!

Also, when I was a child I had a large wood splinter go into my pupil which needed to be tweezered out. Yuck!

WHAT WAS YOUR WORST ILLNESS?

The pneumothorax. It has resulted in me never being able to scuba dive again -- I'm gutted.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CURE?

There is no beating rest when you are sick. A warm bed, plenty of fluids, vitamin C, some TLC and Jeremy Kyle/Oprah is essential!

WOULD YOU GET YOUR FIVE A DAY?

This is something I rate very poorly on. I sometimes take Juice Plus Fruit and vegetable supplements when I'm missing my five a day. There's nothing better than the real thing.

ANY VICES?

Where do I start? Dominos pizza, Ben and Jerry's ice cream, Cornettos, pancakes, marshmallows, pick'n'mix, ginger nuts and tea, vegetarian Pad Thai, lattes, Marks & Spencer's Triple Chocolate cereal (divine!), garlic mushrooms . . .

EVER DIETED?

No. I can't put weight on if I try. My version of 'dieting' consists of eating high good-fat foods! Some people think this is a good problem to have, but it's not ideal.

ANY FAMILY AILMENTS?

Luckily I am from a pretty fit, strong and healthy background. Touch wood it stays like that.

HOW MANY HOURS' SLEEP DO YOU GET?

A healthy eight hours. I love my sleep. Anything less than eight hours and I feel awful.

DO YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH GOALS?

I'm trying to put on a few pounds and hit the home gym.

DO YOU SMOKE OR HAVE YOU EVER SMOKED?

I gave up this New Year's and am determined to stay off them.

What is your favourite leisure activity?

Walking my two Yorkies -- Rocco and Harley. I know it's not really a 'leisure' activity but I absolutely love running my business and being surrounded by beautiful sparkly girly products all day long, too.
