Gold, Frankie says, and myrrh
Frankie Goes To Hollywood have tackled a lot of Important Topics already this year —
Christmas? I’m basically for it. Oh, deffo (laughs). It’s a good thing.
Where I’d really like to be is on a beach in the Bahamas but I suppose in a way just because of the holiday value. I think I’ll be at home with my mum and dad in Liverpool. Everyone should be at home really. I’ve got like close family, like brothers and sisters and nephews, and mum and dad, but I don’t see many relatives outside that. No doubt I’ll see them this Christmas, a lot of them! (Laughs). Oh, what fun!
No-one goes out on Christmas Day, do they? Everywhere’s just desolate and everyone’s at home —
Best and worst Christmas? The best one I think I got a fab magic set from my mum (laughs). I was very young, about six, something like that. I was very pleased with that. I was pissed off last
The Queen’s Speech? If it comes on the television while I’m sitting there in front of it, then possibly I’ ll watch it. I always like to see what she’s wearing! I I mean, they are a source of entertainment, the Royal Family —
Favourite carol? I suppose I should say ‘Oh Come All Ye Faithful’, shouldn’t I? But it’s ‘Once In Royal David’s City’ I think. I used to do it in the church choir —
New Year’s resolutions? To be a bit more organised, basically. I just create this mess around me! (Laughs).I don’t know —
I like the presents. And the dinner! Of course I’m for it.
I’d like to be on a beach somewhere —
I’ve got one sister, Monica, who my dad always spends Christmas with, and I tend to spend Christmas with. A lot of my sisters live in America —
My best Christmas I think was when me and my twin sister were about ten and one of my sisters who lives in America —
The Queen’s Speech? It’s always playing somewhere in the background but I never take much heed of it. Sorry, Lizzie. They do the job —
Favourite carol? I like ‘Silent Night’ —
New Year’s resolutions? I don’t need to make any! (Laughs). I just need to break a few! I never keep to them, so what’s the point? It’s too traditional for me, all that rubbish. I can’t handle it. All these people —
I’m all for the getting drunk and getting presents bit! I suppose it’s a good time, yeah. Nobody really knows what it’s about any more —
I’ll be at home in Liverpool. There’s about eight of us in the house —
The best Christmas I’ve ever spent would be when I got a bike —
The Queen’s Speech? Nah. More likely be —
Favourite carol? I suppose it’s the one you remember most from school —
New Year’s resolutions? I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions. But I think we might be in New York on New Year so that’1I be good.
I’m for Christmas, yeah. Because it’s a happy time of the year and everyone’s happy and I’m happy.
I hope to be spending Christmas at home in Liverpool with my family —
I don’t think I’ve had a bad Christmas. All the Christmases I’ve had have been good for me. They’re all good. The most surprising Christmas present when I was younger was when I got a bike. That was about ten years ago. Usually you find out just before what you’ve got —
The Queen’s Speech? No. I’ve never watched the Queen’s Speech. It’s not that I don’t think I’d be interested, it’s just that I’ve always been out in the pub or something. I’m for them —
Favourite carol? No. None at all.
New Year’s resolutions? To stop getting drunk, to calm down a bit, because I’m going a bit mad with the other two at the moment. We’re all a bad influence on each other!
It’s good. You get drunk! Nah —
Christmas dinner and all that? Dead good. There’s only four of us and three of us still live at home —
Not last Christmas but the year before was the best Christmas I’ve had. I was in the pub for nineteen consecutive nights! I’ve never really had a real bummer of a Christmas. Best Christmas present? Subbuteo. I’d already had the first edition when I was about eight or nine, and then I got the World Cup one when I was about ten —
The Queen’s Speech? No! I don’t like them. I just think they’re a waste of time. I wish I could get that much money for doing so little. Being a tourist attraction —
Favourite carol? ‘Oh Come All Ye Faithful!’ What a predictable answer! But you know when they all get dead loud at the end when they’re all a bit raucous —
New Year’s resolutions? To try and stop smoking. Again. That’s been my New Year’s resolution for the past three years, but they’re made to be broken, aren’t they?
