Ahead of Texas' Trinity Summer Series show, Sharleen Spiteri answers our burning questions...
Who would be the last person I would invite to my birthday party?
Donald Trump, because he has caused so much outspoken hatred in the world we live in today.
Who would be the first person you would invite to your birthday party?
My mum because I wish she was still here.
I heard a good saying that was, ‘The front-person gets too much attention when things are going good, but the front-person also gets too much bad attention when things are going wrong.’
Perfume by Patrick Süskind and To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
Favourite film ?
I’m going to have to say my friend Dame Judi Dench, because she is just ultra cool.
Most embarrassing moment of your life?
There have been hundreds! I’m the clumsiest person in the world. I’ve fallen off stages, I’ve tripped going into rooms, I’ve thrown drinks over myself in company. Loads!
I love Japanese food, after which I always hanker for a glass of red wine. I guess the stimulant would be life.
Favourite TV programme?
I just finished watching The Last Of Us, which was amazing.
Favourite TV Personality?
Favourite Item of clothing?
A really great pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
Most desirable date?
Favourite method of relaxation?
If you weren’t pressuring your current career, what other career might you have chosen?
I always wanted to do architecture, interior design, that kind of thing.
Still being here.
I’ll be honest, I’ve not really had a lot of big disappointments. I feel pretty lucky.
Your concept of heaven?
Somewhere where I get to see all the people I have missed for a long time and have a massive party.
Your concept of hell?
Somewhere that hopefully I won’t go.
What would be your dying words?
May the good lord shine a light on me.
I’m kinda living it, so I feel pretty lucky to be doing that.
Period of history I’ve most liked to live in and why?
I would probably say the ’40s, going into the ’50s. Everything was changing massively and I love the fashion as well.
If you weren’t a human being, which animal would you have chosen to be?
Probably some kind of bird, even though I don’t like flying. But to have so many different ways to view the world must be quite amazing.
If you were told that the world was ending tomorrow morning, how would you react?
Well, there’s not really anything you can do, is there? So, I would just want to be with the people I love.
Your nominee for the world's best dressed person?
Favourite term of abuse?
Ooh, never tell anybody that, cause then it might happen.
Humanity’s most useful invention?
I would probably say… a potato peeler.
Humanity’s most useless invention?
Oh I know, one of those things that squeezes a teabag. Don’t get it at all.
Texas play the Trinity Summer Series on Monday, June 26.
