A minute with Cyprus Life & Style

A minute with…Jo Allsop, singer and dancer

Where do you live and with whom?

Kissonerga, Paphos, with my lovely dog Rocky.

Best childhood memory?

Performing at the Royal Albert Hall in London; I had dreadful butterflies which magically vanished when I got on stage!

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish?

Michael’s Tavern, Erimi, for beef stroganoff.  I’d really turn my nose up at liver and onions!

What did you have for breakfast?

Pancakes with lemon and sugar.

Would you class yourself as a day or night person?

Realistically, I’m more of a night person because I work late and then sleep in but a perfect day out would be walking along the beach with a best friend, having lunch and talking all afternoon.

Best book ever read… what did you like most about it?

Romeo and Juliet; Shakespeare’s writing is amazing and the storyline of star-crossed lovers is one I think everybody loves

Favourite film of all time?

Black Hawk Down: based on true events, the action and the effects are brilliant. I always shed a tear as it has so much emotion as well as action.

Favourite holiday destination (or best holiday ever taken)?

Florida, I went there to dance at the opening of downtown Disney and it was an awesome experience. Plus the rides at Disneyland and Universal were great fun.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?

Pink, she is a queen of rock! From a working perspective I also have to immerse myself in numbers I’m going to perform. Right now you could say I’m ‘Abba-ed out’ as I had 30 numbers to take on board as Frida for Abba Dabba Do. We’re honoured to be performing 15 of them for the Concert for Heroes.

What is always in your fridge?

Cheese, I absolutely love it!

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling?

Rural retreat, it would be somewhere hot (no specific place in mind). A big house with a swimming pool in the middle of nowhere.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?

I’d have an evening out with Andrew Lloyd-Webber. I have always loved musicals and to have an evening talking musical theatre would be fabulous.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?

I’d want to have time with my closest friends, having fun.

What is your greatest fear?

Having regrets.

Tell me a joke

Q: Why are dogs such bad dancers?

A: They have two left feet.
