Melanie Webb – PR Consultant

What was your first job?
I was 10 years old and I was in the West End show Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, at the London Palladium with Jason Donovan. My school choir was personally chosen to be in the show by Andrew Lloyd Webber. We did the show for three months and also recorded the album and video for the number one single ‘Any Dream Will Do’. It was hands down one of the best experiences of my life and I still dine out on it now!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
An actress and performer – I think the experience mentioned above gave me a taste for it!

Soundtrack of your life?
Right now it’s ‘Lady Gaga – Stupid Love’, because my almost two year old daughter is obsessed with it and sings and dances to it on repeat every day

Biggest pet peeve?
People that don’t pick up after their dogs – if you aren’t prepared to clean up after them, don’t have one!! Also – people that park in the parent and child spaces who don’t have children.

What is one thing you’re learning and why is it important?
That everything happens for a reason and if something is meant to be, it will be. Remembering that can help to keep stress levels in check.

Favourite phrase?
As above – ‘What will be will be’. And the French expression – ‘Zut Alors!’

What is your guilty pleasure?
The Daily Mail online – isn’t it everyone’s?

What is your most used emoji? 😬 and 😩 – both almost always in relation to my children

Do you have a hidden talent?
Not really, although I have a weirdly good memory for things like other people’s car registration plates and birthdays. And before the days of mobile phones I used to know all my friends and family’s phone numbers by heart

Do you have an industry idol, if so who? And why?
I have big respect for Lorraine Heggessey – I think she was a brilliant BBC One controller – look how popular Strictly still is, and she commissioned that nearly 20 years ago – she’s really led the way for women in the industry. I also think Sally Wainwright is a fantastically talented writer.

What is your favourite thing about being a Bubble?
My favourite thing about being a Bubble is the fact that there is such a relaxed vibe -– despite the fact that everyone works so hard, and that everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Not to mention the great list of clients!
