As Supergran, a grandmother with superpowers, she brightened and lightened the hearts of youngsters everywhere. Here Gudrun Ure talks roast chicken, pensioners and Barack Obama

First record you ever bought
I have never bought a record.

Last time you were chatted up
The chance would be a fine thing!

First film that really moved you
I have not a clue.

Last lie you told
I’m too goody-goody.

First movie you ever went to on a date
We didn’t – the war was on and nobody was around.

Last time you cried
I don’t do crying.

First thing you do when you get time off work
I go to bed.

Last great meal you cooked
Simon Hopkinson’s roast chicken with lemon for my family – I can recommend it.

Your last extravagant purchase
White shoes – they cost a fortune but were beautiful.

First crush
I had a great admiration for my history teacher

Last book you read
Barack Obama’s autobiography – fascinating.

First piece of advice you were given
I don’t remember being given any.

Last time you were starstruck?
I don’t go in for being starstruck.

First thing you would do if you ran the country
Pensioners would get a much better deal.

Last meal on earth - what would it be?
A very nice cannelloni.

First song you would sing at karaoke
Oh no!

Have you ever exploited your position?

First time you realised you were famous
I’m not.

Last time someone criticised your work
I don’t remember.

First word used by friends to describe you
Possibly ‘private’.

Last time you made an impulse buy and regretted it
A mail-order skirt and top.

What was the first concert ever attended
No idea.

Last time you bought someone flowers
For a friend’s birthday party.

First thing you think of when you wake up in the morning
How many times did I get up in the night for the loo?

Last thing you think of before sleep
Will I get to sleep?
