About me

Name: Ande Gray

Brothers / Sisters?

I have 7 brothers and sisters. John, Michael, Sarah, Susie, Mark, Nicky and Sharon. I also have a nephew, who may as well be a brother, called Jordan.


I enjoy singing, dancing and acting. I have been in loads of musicals including High School Musical, West Side Story, Little Shop of Horrors and My Fair Lady. I used to be a dancer for the Belfast Giants. I also love reading and watching movies.

What's the best thing about being a Culture Clubber?

Meeting all the different people in Northern Ireland, and hearing their unique stories.

Which country would you most like to visit and why?

I've always wanted to go to Australia. I quite fancy the swimming with sharks, deep sea diving kind of thing....not too sure about the spiders though!! The sunshine would also be a big plus, not that I tan very much, with my tinge of ginge. I seem to freckle more than tan!

Where is the furthest place you have travelled to outside of Northern Ireland?

New York - I was there with some friends for a month a few years ago - best time ever!!

Can you speak any language other than English?

I can speak a bit of German!

Favourite Food?

Mmmmm, I always loved jaffa cakes, but now I'm a coeliac so I had to say bye bye to those. So now, meal wise I'd say Honey Chilli Chicken from the Chinese. For a wee snack... nothing like a ripple bar!

Favourite Colour?


Favourite TV Programme?

I love Lost and I'm digging the new version of 90210. I'd be lying if I said you wouldn't catch me watching Eastenders and the classic cartoons - Thundercats, Defenders of the Earth and my old fav Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles!

Favourite Band/Artist?

The Beatles for the oldies, present day Take That are pretty decent, but I do love Girls Aloud's talents too! Add to them Matchbox 20, Kings of Leon...too many to pick one!

Favourite Animal?

I can't have one, I have too many to choose from! I have 5 dogs - Roxy, Patch, Copper, Snoop and Tina and 4 cats -  Mo, Jeffrey, Floozie and Billy. I also have some fish...they don't have names, but my Nanny always said they all called each other Bob - so that's good enough for me!

Favourite Subject at School?

I loved History and Drama as well as English because I had an awesome teacher!

Favourite Item of Clothing?

Mmmmmmmmm, I love my Hawaiian shirts - but the prize has to go to my awesome baseball boots!
