From sushi bouquets to feel-good songs, we chat ALL the important stuff with the rising star...
With only a couple of weeks to go before Ella Eyre’s hotly-anticipated solo album Feline hits the shelves, we thought we'd better grab a minute with the singer and face of Emporio Armani Diamonds fragrance while we could. As gorgeous in the flesh as she is on camera, we insisted on pawing through her make-up bag and generally being nosy by asking her to finish these sentences:
When I was a teenager… My mum told me that grown-ups don't like teenagers, which is the last thing you want to hear when you are one yourself!
I wouldn't leave with house without… A pair of Ray-Bans. I take them everywhere.
My secret skill… Is not very secret now: I can simultaneously cross one eye and keep the other one looking straight ahead...

I get a lot of joy from… Sushi. I love sushi. Once on Valentine's Day someone I was dating rocked up at the airport to pick me up with a bag of salmon because I love it so much.
If I need a pick-me-up… I listen to Golden by Jill Scott.
The last great party I went to… Was to celebrate Jesy and Jake's engagement - we just went to their house and drank, it wasn't an official party or anything.
My favourite film is… The Lion King.
And I always cry when… I watch the John Lewis Christmas ads.
My idea of hell is… A lot of balloons. I hate them and the idea of them popping.
I was starstruck when I met… Joanna Lumley. She's incredibly nice, though.
