DEBBIE RUSH - CHRISTMAS Q&A 2015
She will start out by having a Christmas that is very dull but it turns out to be very merry, when an unexpected invitation to Sally and Tim’s house leads to a close encounter with Kevin Webster!
Make a NY resolution for your character…
To have better choice in men!
What’s your favourite Christmas board game?
Scrabble - we love playing it as a family, and we love a game of Who’s in the Bag.
What’s your Christmas tipple?
I’d like to be posh and say Champagne but actually I love Prosecco. I also love a good old Vodka and tonic too.
Turkey or otherwise?
This year it is going to be Turkey and a lovely honey glazed ham!
Where’s your favourite place to spend Christmas?
I love being at home - for me there is no better place.
Best Christmas tip?
Just relax and enjoy it, don’t get stressed, it is just another day.
Favourite Christmas memory…
Mine is the first Christmas that our eldest Tom knew what Christmas was all about and he got a wooden rocking horse. I have the photograph from that day but I can remember taking it, I can remember the moment. I remember his little face as he turned round and looked at us.
Sprouts...devil or delicious?
Oh delicious and good for you!
Christmas Day...PJs or fancypants?
Fancypants definitely, it’s tradition.
If you could spend Christmas Day in any other country where would you spend it?
I would love to go to New York and do the whole magical New York Christmas, ice skating in Central Park.
Favourite Christmas film?
It’s a Wonderful Life, ever since I was tiny.
Favourite Christmas song or carol?
Describe your perfect Christmas…
Everyone round at ours, family all the way.
Favourite Corrie Christmas...yours, your characters, or a scene off screen!
It was the year that the Windasses ended up at the Platts house for Christmas dinner and had a food fight with vol-au-vents! We caused mayhem.
What would you like to find in your Christmas stocking?
A massive great big huge dirty diamond!
You have one spot left at the dinner table..Who would you give it to, anyone past or present?
