Gillie lives in a flat in the Byker Wall in Newcastle.
Mariah Carey is an endless inspiration and Gillie thinks she's an excellent singer and songwriter.
Gillie says that even though Mariah Carey is possessed with an intelligence about what she's doing, she still chooses tacky things and imbues them with such fortitude and certainty.
Gillie has a pineapple from a charity shop that she quite likes: she thinks it's brass and she felt like a champion when she found it.
