Me and my health: Julia Bradbury; Our Health.

JULIA Bradbury, 27, has presented Top Gear and its nautical brother Water World.

Other recent projects include fronting BBC Choice's Backstage and presenting Moral Dilemmas for the Living channel.

She started her career in advertising, but moved over to television when she was 23, working on a number of satellite channels. Two years later she landed the job as GMTV's LA correspondent, where she stayed until 1997.

Julia was born in Dublin, but educated in Sheffield and her family home is now in Rutland.

How much sleep do you need? Eight hours - I need that much to make sure I've recharged my batteries.

How do you feel first thing in the morning? Absolutely terrible - I don't want to come out from under my duvet.

What exercise do you take? None. I try to walk everywhere but I'm always tempted by black taxi cabs.

Are you careful about what you eat? Not really, no - I eat what I like.

Are you or have you ever been overweight? Yes. When I was in my early 20s I went travelling around South Africa for six weeks and put on one and half stone. I ate so much - things like ribs for breakfast.

Do you take vitamin and mineral pills? Yes - berroca.

What foods can't you bear to eat? Oysters and any slimy fish food, especially caviar.

Do you drink or smoke too much? I probably drink too much but can never really remember.

Have you ever been in hospital? Yes. I had salmonella food poisoning when I was 13 years old.

Does your job affect your health? No

How often do you consult your doctor? Doctor who?

Do you catch a cold most winters? Yes, no matter how much I try to avoid them, I always end up catching at least one every year.

Do you think you suffer from stress? Yes. It takes the form of lots of excess nervous energy.

Do you look after your skin? Yes, I must admit that I religiously cleanse, tone and moisturise.

Are you happy with your body? Yes - overall-ish

Do you take more care of yourself as the years go by? I haven't started to do that yet, but when I see the signs of ageing starting to creep in I will.
