Great stuff, I have a few questions

1. What fascinated you to get into video games in the first place?
2. Do you feel that with the majority of gamers been male, may have made other female gamers step back from their potential or discriminated against? what are you views on female gamer feminism?
3. During your career as a presenter, getting to be part of video game show, is like every gamers life dream, how was it for you initially? comparing the presenting style to other shows you've worked on e.g. WildBunch or Coolcube?
4. What has been your favorite experience being a video games presenter that stood out to you?
5. Would there of been anything you would of changed or done differently during those times?
6. Bad Influence has a massive following, what was your most memorable time during the show?

I'm afraid Sokurah already asked the Q i was thinking lol. Wow did I fancy her lol
Guess I'm too late now but I always remember Club Drive on that show and they said it was "obviously unfinished". then I bought the game and it looked exactly the same as their "preview" lol brilliant!!! :D
