My youngsters at the moment are being taught the ocarina, which is just like the spherical model of the recorder.

Something you want to have redone the music to?
You already know the Cats movie that received panned? I nearly really feel that if they’d taken a leftfield flip with it musically, somewhat than maintaining it so in tune with the unique, it may need labored a bit higher. I don’t know, like Daft Punk doing it – their rating for Tron 2 is nice.
What different tracks have gotten you thru lockdown?
The college run has been soundtracked by Hocus Pocus from the band Focus. They’re obsessive about that music as a result of it’s like a musical opera.
And since we love the Guardians Of The Galaxy movies, they liked Hooked On A Feeling. My seven-year-old does probably the most sensible dance to that.

Any gig! I filmed the Shelter Carol Live performance a couple of weeks in the past at St Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Sq.. I’m not non secular however there’s one thing about being in a church at Christmas and listening to a choir sing. By As soon as In Royal David’s Metropolis, I used to be bawling my eyes out.

Completely. The very last thing I did earlier than the primary lockdown was interview Olivia Colman whereas she was in her tweed and her curlers and her hairnet. I like her – she’s so salt of the earth.
What was probably the most stunning factor you realized?
It’s so humorous, I’ve so many individuals that use me because the fact-checker. My mum will sort of go, did this occur?
It’s clearly primarily based on actual occasions and actual folks however it’s a dramatisation. We don’t know what goes on behind closed doorways. I additionally assume Emma Corrin as Diana was an impressed piece of casting.

My mum has an MBE and the Queen truly got here to my mum and pa’s resort for lunch with the Prince again within the Nineteen Eighties.
The resort was all concerning the native produce and so they have been actually enthused about that. I keep in mind watching our mum and all her sisters lined up and so they have been all in several kilts and so they all had Diana haircuts. It was hilarious.

Throughout lockdown Elliott Williams, who’s a member of my husband’s band Editors [Bowman is married to frontman Tom Smith], was doing a reside DJ set for Oxfam and we had him on the massive display screen in Tom’s studio downstairs and all of us simply had a go dancing about. I like a house disco vibe.
