My body & soul: George Lamb, presenter, 29

Have you ever spent a night in hospital? I've only been in hospital for my wisdom teeth. They had to saw into my jaw and then you have two weeks in agony with blood pouring out your mouth. That's as hardcore as anything I've ever had.

Do you worry about your weight? I think I'm secretly fat, so I have to work very hard just to maintain the status quo. I'm turning 30 this year and I swore to myself that I was going to go into my 30th year with a six pack so I can look back at some old pictures and go, "Boy, I was in good shape."

What exercise do you take? I run to work every day, I do two mornings with a trainer and I try to get at least one kick boxing session in a week. I like running because you can turn the phone off, stick the iPod on and off you go.

How much sleep do you need? I wake up like clockwork after seven hours. If I go to sleep at 11, I know when I open my eyes that it'll say six on the alarm clock. Girlfriends don't like it much. I'm up and out every day - and then at the weekend I'm that dude waking up at six and nudging them.

How much do you drink? Not a lot. I probably have two beers and two glasses of wine a week and then once every two or three weeks I have a big night out. I've got my whole life to get old, go to the country and turn into a lush so while I'm working I'm just kind of in the zone.

And smoke? I smoked when I was a kid and a mate of my mum's said he'd give me £250 if I stopped. I didn't really like it that much anyway so that was a catalyst. When you're 18 that's big dough.

Are you happy? Life's pretty good. I'm forever looking ahead and aspiring - that's part of my make-up - but my message to myself this year is to try and be in the now a little bit more.

Is sex important to you? It's a huge part of everybody's life, or certainly people my age.

Have you ever had therapy? I did a bit of therapy years ago, but didn't really like the woman I did it with. All I did was spout off and she went, "OK, we'll have a think about it."

Would you have cosmetic surgery? No, but if you've hit the gym, stayed off the fags, stayed off the booze and eaten healthily and you're still not happy, try it out. But don't pull yourself to bits or you'll end up looking like the Bride of Wildenstein.
