Grundy Art Gallery
This is one of Blackpool's most impressive buildings. The paintings are from different eras and the gallery often has one-off exhibitions, too. A lovely place to wander around on a wet day.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach
The funfair is a big part of my home town. The Pleasure Beach is still the main reason lots of people come here and some of it is brilliant. The Infusion rollercoaster takes your breath away.

When I'm driving back from London, and I first see the metal structure from miles away, I know I'm almost home.

I still love to go walking with my Yorkshire terrier, Louis, along the sand. Even when the wind blows it's an exciting place to be, in or out of the holiday season.
When I was battling to lose weight, I used to jog around the outside of the zoo. Sometimes you could hear the lions roaring. Inside, it's fantastic fun for the kids.
East Park Drive. Tel: 01253 830830
This is a stylish wine bar in a pretty, old building. It's the sort of place I like to go to catch up with my mates on what has been happening while I've been performing in London.

Hounds Hill Shopping Centre
Hounds Hill has only just opened and it's proving really popular. I like the big Debenhams store and the fact it is right in the middle of town, just by the Tower.

Blackpool North Pier
The North Pier is closest to my parent's home and I used to pass by it a lot. I have appeared in a show there, too. There's a big wheel and Victorian carousel.

Funny Girls Showbar
This is a real song and dance venue - all about having a great time! They have lots of live cabaret, with fantastic dancers and costumes. It's brilliant!
