Any Other Questions with... Rachel Chinouriri

This month, Rachel Chinouriri runs the gauntlet of our random, stupid queries.

What was the first record you bought?

Coldplay's 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head'.

If you won the lottery, what would you spend the cash on?

A house, a business, and then charity work.

What was the last thing you broke?

My mental health.

Which defunct band would you most like to reform?

Oasis, it will be an absolute miracle, but there is still hope.

Do you believe in aliens?

Absolutely. Maybe we are the aliens?

What is the best present you've ever been given?

A golden guitar pick with my name on it during a Secret Santa (shout out to Chiara).

When's your birthday?

1st November.

How do you feel about Marmite?

Next question.

Who's your favourite pop star?

Probably Astrid S or Raye.

What is the worst job you've ever done?

Paper round because there are literally no days off… Christmas, New Year, you always have to be up at 6am every day.

What's your biggest fear?

Close call between moths and heights - I cannot be in a room with a moth of any size.

What is your earliest memory?

My dad taking me to Toys "R" Us.

If you could have a superpower of your choosing, what would it be?

Invisibility.

What's your fave TV show?

You. (It's Netflix, but I don't really watch TV, I usually just watch documentaries.)

Have you ever been to a showbiz party?

Ummmmmm, no.

What's the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you?

Had a panic attack in Kokoro toilets with my boyfriend of a couple months and best friend after I got acid reflux from eating their food (it wasn't their fault, I just had a dodgy diet as a teen).

What did you last dream about?

I don't remember my dreams, and if I do, they're weird as hell and usually predict future events.

How punk are you out of ten?

A soft 3 to light 4.

If you weren't a musician, what would you be doing?

Probably a criminal psychologist or detective. My goal in life is to be an amazing mother, but that doesn't pay the bills so a criminal psychologist or a detective.

What's your favourite sandwich filling?

Avocado and parma ham.

Have you ever had an imaginary friend?

Absolutely.

What's in your fridge right now?

Nothing interesting, some avocado, eggs, maybe some take away I'm saving for lunch.

Can you dance?

It depends on who's judging my dancing ability.

Tell us a secret about yourself?

My ears are two different shapes.
