I am a survivor and not a victim. Life isn't perfect. When you get a knock, you have to get up, dust yourself down and get on with it.
Up until the age of 30 I could eat whatever I wanted - I mean, literally, I never put on a pound; if anything, I was criticised in the media for being too skinny.
Once a child is confronted with the concept of death there's a certain innocence that goes.
I am a happy person and I choose to be a positive person. I think some people think my life has been tragic and there have been these horrible dramas but things really have been, and are, fine.
Life is never going to be perfect, as much as we want it to be, and I have to lead by example.
When something bad is written about me, I find it hurtful. So I choose not to look at it.
Everything in life is a lesson and I have learned from each marriage. Yes, I've made mistakes but every experience is a learning curve.
I am actually really boring and I lead a quiet life. I love being at home, cooking for my boys, watching movies and I like nothing better than to go to bed early with a book.
I most want to be remembered for being as great a mother to James and Lennon as my mum was to me and my brother Jamie.
I'm happy to be at home with the kids, in my flannel pajamas; that's a treat.
I'm Catholic and Mum taught me the comfort that you can get from going to church. But I'm an a la carte Catholic. I love all the pomp and ceremony of it.
I always carry prayer cards to St. Jude and St. Martha with me.
If you're in love with someone maybe you can show it too much.
My mum worked as a secretary for Christian Dior. She looked like a movie star.
Dad was the first man I fell in love with. He was a very funny man. He grew up in the East End of London and was very dynamic, and I understood why my mother fell in love with him.
