Who would you choose to spend a romantic evening with? My girlfriend Kim, but if she wasn't available it would be Frankie from The Saturdays (ha ha).

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do? Get on the next plane to anywhere, as long as it had a sandy beach, to gather my thoughts on how I wanted to spend all my cash on my friends and family.
