Favourite music: My favourite music is Tango. I have so many Tango CDs and I love salsa and flamenco. I just love Latin music and that’s what I listen to when I’m at home. I listen to so much Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday and Nat King Cole. I really like Keane, The Killers, White Strips, James Blunt, Damien Rice and Fiona Apple. My little sister helps me a lot.
