Bloggers: “So Mrs Moyce, we are going to ask you some questions and you can answer as truthfully as you want.”

Mrs Moyce: “Ooh I hope they are not hard!”

Bloggers: “Don’t worry Mrs Moyce there is nothing to worry about. So the first is…..what is your favourite dessert?”

Mrs Moyce: “Mhm…that’s a tough one. I’ve got four!”

Bloggers: “Sorry ma’am you can only choose one”

Mrs Moyce: “Okay, if so, then…. I’d go for Malva Pudding.”

Bloggers: “Who is your favourite celeb?”

Mrs Moyce: “I don’t really have one! Wow this is a hard one. Can we get back to it later?”

Bloggers: “Sure, next question. What is your favourite toast topping?”
