You’re the current ambassador for Jockey and their “Women Who Wear the Pants” campaign—what’s it all about?
RITCHIE: Big pants are back! Women want something comfortable that still makes them feel confident and sexy. I absolutely love the idea of “wearing the pants” and being in charge, it’s a great message.
Do you enjoy the juggle? Being a mum and full-time work?
RITCHIE: Yes, and I feel privileged that I’m able to make both work, and for the most part, harmoniously.
Did you learn any expert makeup tips through all your years on screen?
RITCHIE: A few things drummed into me were: regularly update your mascara; never share it; always have clean makeup brushes; and never fall into bed with your face on.
What exciting things are in the pipeline?
RITCHIE: I’m awaiting my inevitable invitation to the royal wedding, which will be just wonderful! On top of that I have a big birthday to plan for, a No. 1 radio show to turn up for each weekday and a new children’s book on the horizon.
