Not all my shoes are designer. In terms of clothes, everything is on the same level for me. If I like it, it doesn't matter if it cost £200 or £2. I'm attracted to things rather than labels.
When I first started out, I got criticism for the way I looked. I think, now, it's a good thing because, why would you want to look like everyone else?
Trust your instincts: they tend to see you right. By listening to them, at least you can sleep at night.
Now when I say Sophie Ellis-Bextor I feel that's not really me because that's become this entity from doing the gigs and the shows and the make-up contracts and whatever else.
I'm a sucker for sad disco pop.
In real life, I'm not super-posh but if that's the stereotype, I really don't care. It could be worse.
I don't want to sound like an old grandmother but actually it's quite nice when you get up early and then, by the time it gets to 10am, you're quite perky and already quite switched on.
You should make an effort on stage because it's a performance. The stage should be glittery and camp, but I don't go down the shops in full stage gear.
Getting up to dance to your own stuff looks pretty pretentious. And leaving the dancefloor when it comes on is just awkward.
I get really frustrated if people don't smile.
I try not to wear anything I have to fidget with - there's nothing worse than wearing something and pulling down the hem and re-adjusting the top. My pet hate is when girls wear those strapless dresses and spend the whole night yanking them up.
There are a lot of people out there who lie about their age and I think it does us all a disservice. It can't all be over when you hit 30. That would be rubbish.
I'm really interested in fashion but at the same time I find it quite competitive. Second-hand stuff leaves you more open to whatever your own personal style is rather than feeling dictated to by shops.
I don't think that old-fashioned idea of record companies exists any more.
I started my music career at 18 and for a long while I let other people handle my affairs.
I used to be hung up on my figure, but it's a waste of time. I don't believe in diets. Have four pints one night, be healthy the next.
My parents are good role models because they've worked hard and gave me a happy childhood.
There's so many singers, you watch them and a lot of it is waving around. You don't get this feeling that they're really thinking about what they're saying.
I try my hardest not to read reviews.
I'd never really thought about it before, but now you ask I can see that how my parents handled money definitely affected my relationship with it.
Like my mum, I sometimes buy things I shouldn't and fill my house with rubbish.
My little boy Sonny makes me laugh all the time. He has good comedic timing.
I was an only child, but then my parents resettled with different partners, and I am now one of six.
I'm too frightened of confrontation, so I will always tip - even if the service has been really shoddy.
I'm big in Russia, but no one's quite sure why.
