If you had to be stuck in a lift with someone, who would it be and why?

Justin Bieber, so I could ask him to share Ayla’s story with his fans. He has over 50million followers on Twitter and just one tweet from him would be amazing.

What is your biggest fear?

Losing somebody close to me. I worry about health concerns of my family and friends. I’m happiest when I know that everybody is fit and well.

Do you have any superstitions?

I’m very superstitious, don’t put new shoes on a table, walking under a ladder, saluting a magpie if there is one on their own and not crossing on the stairs, but with four children constantly going up and down, that’s pretty impossible.

If you could have one song on your iPod, what would it be and why?

Tears Dry On Their Own, by Amy Winehouse, it’s a song that brings back fond memories.

What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought not including your property?

My phone, I’m constantly on it either taking pics or trying to tweet Justin Bieber.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

My favourite quote is ‘it is better to be hated for what you are, than loved for what you are not.’ In other words always be true to yourself.

What’s your indulgence?

Chocolate. I’ve got such a sweet tooth.

What item could you not live without?

My family, I’ve got four gorgeous children and a wonderful husband, my parents, siblings, nieces and nephews – I’d be lost without them.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be and why?

I would love to think and worry about things less, what will be will be.

Where are you next going on holiday?

Cornwall with my family in the summer holidays. I love nothing more than the UK especially if we have a lovely summer like last year.

l Khloe Waite is auctioning off Justin Bieber’s shoe to raise money for Oakdale baby Ayla-Mae Hemms who suffers from severe cerebral palsy, to have life changing surgery in America as part of the Ayla-Mae Three Steps Forward Charity.
