Although I love the vibe round Hoxton and, of course, Walford Square is close to my heart. England or Scotland? Scotland will always be first in my heart, but I love living in London and I toured all over England so I know most of it really well. Taxi or Tube? Taxis, because the black cabs of London are a great place to people watch. I dont get much chance to do that these days and I do love a bit of cabbie banter. Hollyoaks or Coronation Street? Coronation Street because I grew up watching it. I love the humour and I have a few friends who are in it and theyd kill me if I didnt say that. Grant or Phil Mitchell? I love both Ross Kemp and Steve McFadden, who play them. Dont all the girls love a bad boy? Take That or Boyzone? Take That. I saw them at Wembley. Id love to see Robbie Williams (left) back with them. Kylie or Dannii Minogue? Id have to say Kylie. I remember that frizzy hair in Neighbours and I admire her courageous and public cancer battle. Gin or wine? Nothings better than a glass of dry white.

Until now, cosmetic surgeons have used liposuction to carry out the deep removal of fat pads around the hips through small skin incisions. But cosmetic surgery expert Patrick Mallucci has developed a new method called superficial liposuction to remove stubborn fat which is resistant to diet and exercise. This technique is performed only on the superficial layer of fat so reduces trauma and bruising. It can also be used to cor- rect pear-shaped figures where fat is deposited on the buttocks and thighs. Mr Mallucci, a consultant at the Royal Free hospital in Hampstead, said: Muf- fin tops show how fat we are getting and this means there is an increasing call for liposuction in different parts of the body. Thanks to this new procedure we can now remove this unsightly layer. The new technique was unveiled at the British Association for Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons annual conference in Cardiff. The Young Londoners Survey, launched today by Boris Johnson, collected views from 1,000 teenagers on the Olympics, environment, crime, transport, education and culture. It revealed that 22 per cent fear mugging and the same figure were scared by gangs. The survey also showed that young people are looking forward to the Olympics and are optimistic about job prospects. More than two-thirds expected to get good jobs after finishing their education. Mr Johnson said: I truly believe that if we engage every young person with an interest after school, from sports, music and dance to team-building groups, we can nurture their ambition.
