Ainsley Harriott

I`ve always been a bit of an entertainer and played the funny man. I was a part-time comedian for years, so I learned how to stand in front of audiences. It made me sure of myself. I like being liked and I love making everyone smile.

I`ve lived in London all my life and have just moved to a larger house with my wife Claire and our two children, Jimmy and Madeleine. We spend a lot of time just singing and dancing around the house. I grew up with music because my dad is the pianist, Chester Harriott – who`s still playing, by the way. My working day is divided between television and writing cook books, though TV takes most of my time. I spend about five days a fortnight working on the cooking programmes I appear in.

I`m a football fan and enjoy going to matches, but I`m a home-loving person really. I don`t like going to the pub but we do go out to eat about twice a month. There`s nothing better than a night at home playing with the children. I rarely go to bed before midnight. Late evening is when fresh thoughts usually come to me, so I often write or plan my programmes then. When I eventually get to bed, I have no trouble sleeping.
