Di is the next up in our homage to our homage to Vogue’s 73 Questions –  she was adamant it was this photo or one with a bag over her head as like most of us she hates having her photo taken!

Before she became The Monday Artichoke Girl in Swaffham (which she does to pay for her many holidays) she worked full time as a medical secretary.
