I never really hated any particular sport but out of all the sports, I used to prefer the team games to running and sprinting and those types of things.
I was always very determined and ambitious, and I knew I would do something that would let me travel and stuff, but I didn't know really know what I would do to get there.
I am really passionate about my career and my music and I am so lucky to be able to do what I do for a job, so for all the early morning starts and long days, I could never trade it all in.
I would love to work with someone like Kevin Spacey as he could pass on what I need to learn.
I think it's certainly natural to try new things as you grow up and get older!
I'm not normally the kind of person who holds on to grudges, I'm really not.
Ideally, I would love to mix singing and acting, but you can only be a pop star for so many years. I mean, at 30 it's a little bit sad, right?
I'd love to break America, like all artists do. It's a lot of work but, you know, it's got to be done!
I'm so programmed to getting up early that I like to make the most of the day.
I can be very passionate but I also have a bit of a hot temper – when pushed.
Songs like Reach and S Club Party are pop classics. I'm really proud that I had a part in them.
I'm a cereal girl. I have always loved my cereal ever since I was a kid.
When people recognise me they just kind of go 'Hi how are you,' really kind of cool you know.
I studied fashion at the London College of Fashion. I get involved in it as part of my own styling, so if I wasn't a pop star maybe a fashion buyer or a stylist.
I really do feel now that the way I dress onstage and for work is a true reflection of my own sense of style as well.
Having a clone would make it so much easier – it would be great to send a clone to a TV station when I have to get up at 4am.
A lot of my childhood memories involve walking home in floods of tears. At that age, feeling unpopular is difficult to handle.
I do love being solo because I can have more of my own creative input to every aspect of my career.
There are so many great artists and most of them are women, but that's good – the more the merrier!
I know it sounds a bit corny, but I do think that beauty and sexiness come from within.
I'd rather stay out of the limelight until I've done something I feel proud of.
Of course it's fantastic to have bands formed in garages, but there is a market for other types of music.
I'd love the opportunity to do something where I could really give my opinion, my feisty side – it'd be fun!
At that age, feeling unpopular is difficult to handle. It's a hard feeling to shake off. Feeling comfortable in my own skin has never been easy for me.
In S Club I played a role in a band, but now I can go off and be me – My horizon's wide open now. It's scary and it's daunting, but it's an absolute thrill. I feel brand new!
I would love a bowl of Frosties, but I start the day with something healthier like a bowl of yoghurt or berries.
Be true to yourself and go with your instincts – don't be somebody you're not just to fit in.
